Do Your Duty

Remember to pick up and properly dispose of your pet’s waste to prevent the bacterial and nutrient pollution of area waterways. In addition to degrading water quality, pet waste contains illness-causing pathogens, including parvovirus, and parasites. Collecting your dog’s waste takes seconds, and many pet parks and walking areas provide bags and trash bins, making it a cinch to be a good citizen. Lee County’s motto is “Do your duty! Pick up the doodie!”
