Jackie Lewis: Unofficial Poop Fairy

June 16, 2022

Town staff have taken the advice of Otis and have been watching carefully for local Poop Fairies. Guess what! There are real humans with magical powers dealing with crappy situations. We want to recognize some of these fairies for going way above the call of doodie (see what we did there)?

This week we feature Jackie and Keva. Otis and his friends are happy.

We recognize and thank you!

Parasite Prevention

Until they learn to wash their paws (hey, at least the cat makes an effort) regular scooping can protect you from parvo, trichinosis, whipworms, hookworms, roundworms, giardia, coccidia, and other troublemakers. DO NOT GOOGLE these terms. Trust us. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) confirms that many parasites can be spread by contact with infected dog waste. It can take more than one year for dog waste to decay, but even when it has visibly disappeared, the parasite eggs it contained can linger for years in the soil.

Join the Club

These weekly reminders are intended to recognize a few of the loyal citizens who have been diligent in picking up after their pets throughout the year. Join the club! You do not have to be a pet owner. There are lots of parks and green spaces that could use a spring cleanup. If you’d like, pop into the Town Office and request a free waste bag container (while supplies last) that you can clip onto your bag or jacket. That way, you have one handy when you come across some leftover poop.
