In response to a growing number of dog poop piles, and a growing number of constituent complaints, Council Member Melissa Mark-Viverito took a page from the very successful “There is no Poop Fairy Campaign” introduced by the Jefferson County Animal Control office in Colorado, to address this serious health hazard with humor; as a means to encourage dog owners to pick up after their dogs in our parks and neighborhoods.
At the “There is no Poop Fairy” workshop, Jorge will be explaining and demonstrating the importance of properly grooming our pets to ensure a longer and healthier life. There will be many animal organizations joining on Saturday and other exciting events happening throughout the day which will include; The Jefferson Dog Park Run, the ASPCA Workshop, Animal Control and Care Workshop, Search and Care and much more. Guests will have the opportunity to win prizes, tee-shirts, raffles, give-a-ways and one lucky grand prize winner will walk away with a visit to a private veterinarian for their pet!
Said Councilwoman Melissa Mark-Viverito;
“I am very excited to be part of this workshop.” Jorge Bendersky explains, “It’s essential to take responsibility of being a pet owner and it’s important to care for our neighborhood too!”
