Be a Good Neighbor

Printer-friendly version

Dog waste contaminates the ground and is the greatest source of potential health risk for your pet, family, and community.  Be conscientious about cleaning up after your dog when out on walks.  Picking up after your pet shows pride in your community, in yourself, and in your dog.  And, it's the law.  Section 6.14.020 of the Brisbane Municipal Code says,

"It is unlawful for the owner or person having custody of any dog to fail to immediately remove and dispose of in a sanitary manner, by placing in a closed or sealed container and depositing in a trash receptacle, any feces deposited by such dog upon private or public property not owned or controlled by the owner or person having custody of such dog. The provisions of this subsection shall not apply to any blind person accompanied by a guide dog."

Because it is the law, the City has provided mutt mitts around town for disposing of your pet's waste.  Therefore, if you happen to see anyone in violation of this law and not picking up after their dog, please report it right away by calling Police Dispatch at 467-1212.  Let's work together to make this Community a safer, happier, and cleaner place for us all.
