It was wet, it was cold, and it was a little gross. On Saturday, May 9, Fur Kids Foundation and the Gillette Dog Owners Group participated in the Coal Country Trash-A-Thon but scooping dog droppings at Dalbey Memorial Park (Fishing Lake) and McManamen Park. A total of 85 pounds of doggy doo was picked up!
Fur Kids Foundation has to give a HUGE shout out to our wonderful volunteers because we may have the best in the world! Seven of them braved the wind, rain and eventually sleet/snow to scoop the poop.
Remember: Each park provides plastic bags to pick up your dog's waste, we ask that if you don't bring your own poo bags to please utilize those provided by the parks. If you walk your dog on public streets or let your dog roam your back yard, please remember to scoop the poop. You make the difference.
