America’s Pet Owners Get the Dirty Deed Done with 1-800-DOG-POOP

January 27, 2009

The 1-800-DOG-POOP Network, which can be accessed over the phone or online, provides a simple and convenient way of connecting pet owners nationwide with their local professional pooper scooper service.

Columbus, OH (PRnine – January 27, 2009) – Though dogs may be man’s best friend, that doesn’t necessarily make cleaning up Fido’s dirty deeds any fun to say the least. 1-800-DOG-POOP’s launch at aims to solve every pet owner’s least favorite responsibility by connecting them with their local pet waste removal service. In addition to the online database of local pooper scoopers, canine owners can simply dial 1-800-DOG-POOP and speak directly to their local pet waste management company.

“Most pet owners are unaware that professional pet waste removal services exist,” says founder Patrick Kelly, who launched 1-800-DOG-POOP to increase the accessibility and awareness of pooper scooper services nationwide. The firm’s primary goal is to make the connection between dog owners and pooper scooper companies as easy as possible through an easy to remember phone number.

“It’s an unforgettable number, partly because it’s fun, and maybe even necessary. Pet owners couldn’t forget how to reach us even if they wanted to,” adds Kelly.

Though the most obvious advantage of a pooper scooper service is the convenience for pet owners, the benefits of routine pet waste removal go beyond just keeping the lawn clean and tidy. Recent scientific research has shown the environmental impact of canine waste accumulation including the potential to harbor harmful diseases and has recently emerged as a top contributor to storm water pollution.

“Unfortunately, some pet owners are under the impression canine waste can be used as fertilizer,” says Kelly, who explains that it is actually fairly ineffective unless properly composted. Moreover, dog poop typically takes a year to break down, and can continue to spread diseases and parasites during this period.

In recognition of the environmental consequences of improper canine waste management, 1-800-DOG-POOP ensures its network of pet waste removal providers discard all waste matter in a safe and environmentally sound manner.
