These convenient pet stations have several advantages for a community. Pet waste can carry viruses, bacteria and parasites harmful to humans and other animals. Dog waste left in parks, playing fields, playgrounds, and on the ground, has the potential to spread those unhealthy bugs to adults and children. Parasites such as roundworm, tapeworms, and a variety of bacteria and viruses that can cause flu-like systems, or worse, can be spread by pets, most often through their waste.
Thank you CTCOG for helping us keep our parks safe!
