Scoop the Poop




Deborah Young has joined the Scoop the Poop campaigns to address the serious human health hazards due to dog poop.  As a result, Deborah Young has written The Poop-Scoop Pledge.  The author is actively contacting various news media to get the word out and encourage every pet owner to take The Poop-Scoop Pledge.  Learn how to conduct a pet waste outreach campaign in your area, watch Scoop the Poop YouTube video


The Poop-Scoop Pledge                                                 

I promise as I walk here and there with my best pal

I will proudly carry a scooper to remove all residual

I will not allow my neighborhood duty to go awry

I promise to be readily observant as we stroll by

I will not harm others with the fecal bacteria group

So, when pal squats to drop piles of poop

I will quickly remove it with a clean swoop

'Cause, I actually care about the public safety, that's no doubt

Believe me; I am so ashamed that it took this long, to shout it out

From this day forward, I will use considerate, discipline

I promise, I'll be a responsible animal lover, thru thick and thin

And, I will encourage others to avoid, committing the same, poop sin

This solemn oath, I will never renege, dilly-dally nor hedge

For, today, I faithfully agree to the crucial, Poop-Scoop Pledge
