The City Of Lewisburg Is Asking Residents To Please Pick Up After Your Pet

LEWISBURG, WV (WOAY) – It doesn’t take much to remember that we have pets in our community.  In fact, if you don’t watch your step, you’re liable to step in one such reminder!

Besides being unsightly and smelly, animal waste can be hazardous to the health of our children who play in the community and other pets.  One of the most common forms of disease transmission between dogs is through fecal matter.

When walking your dog in our community, remember that it should be leashed.  Also. It is important to remember to immediately clean up after your pet.  Take along a baggie with you to pick up waste with and then dispose of it properly.

The City of Lewisburg strives to make the parks both people and pet friendly and has installed “dog stations” at both Hollowell and Dorie Miller Parks which provides plastic bags and disposal cans for pet owners to use during their visits to our parks.

By taking a few simple steps to clean up after your pet, you can contribute not only to the beautification of our community, but also towards the elimination of one of the most irritating nuisances in our community.  Thank you for your cooperation!
