Nelsonville asks you to be responsible and clean-up your pet waste!
Dealing with pet waste is one of those topics that every pet owner must deal with, but no one likes to talk about. The fact is that most of the community and neighborhood pet problems result from the inappropriate handling of pet waste. In addition, pet waste is the greatest source of potential health risk for your pet and your family.
There are several very common diseases that can be transmitted to dogs, cats, and people through feces. These include giardia, roundworms, salmonella, and Ecoli. In addition, your dog can spread or contract parvovirus or coronavirus through infected feces. All these diseases are very serious and common, and every effort should be made by pet owners to keep their pets and family away from potentially infected feces.
Cleaning up after your pet is as easy as 1 – 2 ‐ 3:
Bring a bag.
Clean it up.
Dispose of waste.
The City of Nelsonville ordinances require pet owners to clean up pet waste. Failure to clean up pet waste could result in a fine of up to $150.
