Exceptional Pet Waste Removal in Raleigh, NC
Did you know that only about 60% of dog owners pick up their dogs’ waste? This leaves about 40% of pet owners who either choose not to or forget to pick up after their pets, leaving 11 million tons of dog waste annually, resulting in detrimental environmental outcomes.
Fortunately, DoodyCalls® of Wake County is here to tackle the problem at the source with pet waste removal services in Raleigh designed to clean up communities and create a healthier environment for everyone. Working alongside the Community Associations Institute North Carolina Chapter (CAI-NC), we’ve gained a better understanding of the community management industry and utilized our core values of integrity, service, leadership, and respect to help educate residents about the harmful effects of animal waste on the environment.
Still, these environmental issues go beyond just solid waste and nutrients that can move into local streams and water supplies. Animals can transmit various bacteria and viruses, such as E.coli, salmonella, cryptosporidium, and intestinal parasites and worms. These pathogens can potentially spread to other animals and mammals as well.
Some of the ways Raleigh is working to address this issue include the following:
- Wake County Environmental Services receiving $49,957 to expand well water awareness and testing campaigns
- Tar River Land Conservancy receiving $250,000 to purchase over 660 acres to protect almost 9 miles of streams, creek banks, wetlands, and habitats around Swift Creek
- A grant of more than $200,000 to The Water Resources Research Institute to introduce green infrastructure and carry out wetland restoration activities to minimize and manage stormwater runoff
Attorney General Josh Stein awarded these and various other environment grants in 2022 in the amount of $2.5 million. With adequate federal funding, DoodyCalls® of Wake County can help mitigate the pet waste problem and support community cleanup efforts with our residential and commercial dog poop cleanup solutions.
