We Scoop Pledge

​​Follow these three easy steps to participate in the We Scoop program:

1.   Make the We Scoop Pledge.

I pledge to scoop the poop at home at least weekly, rain or shine. 
I pledge to scoop the poop on walks every time. 
I pledge to bag it, and put it in the trash.

2.   Put We Scoop stickers on your curbside trash can.

We Scoop stickers show that you stand together with your neighbors in your commitment to scooping dog poop at home and on walks. Stickers also serve as a reminder to yourself and your neighbors to scoop at home frequently.

3.   Get a free Poop Scooping Toolkit.

The Poop Scooping Toolkit includes free tools to put on your leash: a bag dispenser and flashlight. Never get caught without a bag again. Use the flashlight to help find poop dropped after dark. Every poop makes a difference.
