Scoop the Poop

Part of good pet care is to "scoop the poop" and pick up after your pet. This helps protect human health, wildlife well-being, and our environment, including stormwater. 


  • Harmful organisms can be transmitted in pet waste to people, especially children. 
  • Stormwater can carry dog waste into creeks, streams, and the Snoqualmie River through storm drains, harming people along with fish that are spawning. 
  • Roundworms, Giardia, and Salmonella in pet waste can survive in the environment for months.
