Please pick up after your pets. Our health may depend on it. Pet waste left on the grass or in the woods makes its way to storm drains every time it rains. Storm drains lead to lakes or streams that ultimately lead to our drinking water supply. Pet waste may carry disease-causing organisms. Additionally, believe it or not rats, mice and rodents can and will feed on pet waste leading to infestations.
Please be considerate of our community and pick up after your pets. It's not only the responsible thing to do it is the healthy thing to do. Finally, Fairfax County has the "pooper scooper" law which fines up to $250 for violation.
Thank you for being a good neighbor and picking up after your pets.
