Why hire Poo B Gone? Because we’ve been making customers (and their humans) happy since 2010.
Unlike some other pet waste removal companies, we started out in the pet waste removal business and have been dedicated to providing the absolute best service in the industry from day one. Poo B Gone is not a franchise – it is a locally owned and operated business started right here in Dallas. For us it’s not about the money, it’s about being true to our mission of taking care of our customers to the best of our ability and giving back to animal rescue and the community.
Why do we care so much? Because we are pet owners too – and realize that picking up the poop makes all the difference in the health of your pets, your family, and our environment. You will always receive honest, dependable service from a staff of people who love dogs and will always take the time to throw a ball or scratch between the ears of your furry family members. We also always take time to inspect your dog’s poop, and will alert you to any potential health problems such as visible intestinal parasites or foreign objects your dog ingested.
Are you a big supporter of animal rescue? So are we! Poo B Gone gives a portion of our profits back to local rescue groups, helping them save hundreds of dogs a year and giving them a new better life. Do you foster for a rescue group? Ask us about our special foster program.
The Disgusting Truth About Pet Waste
Animal waste is more than just a nuisance and smelly…it is the #3 polluter of our great nation’s lakes, rivers and streams, and is full of harmful bacteria – some of which can spread disease to humans. Here are the most common myths about dog poop, and why hiring a pooper scooper service is so important if you are unable to “scoop the poop” yourself:
1. Dog poop is NOT fertilizer for your lawn and shrubs. Due to their high-protein diet, dog waste is highly acidic and will actually burn your grass creating brown patches.
2. Just one gram of dog waste can contain as many as 23 million fecal coliform bacteria , which can seep into groundwater and spread salmonella and giardia. This poses a hazard to your pets, your family, and your landscape.
3. Your lawn mower does not chop it up and make it go away. In fact, it makes it worse by spreading it around your yard in smaller pieces where you, your children, and your pets continue to step in it and then bring it into your home.
4. Dog fecal matter is a major contributor to storm water pollution. One out of three households have at least one dog, and all that dog poop left out in the rain eventually liquifies and ends up in our storm drains, which in most metropolitan areas means it also ends up in our lakes and streams.
5. Nearly 20 years ago the EPA classified dog waste as a dangerous pollutant in the same category as toxic chemicals and oil. Not really a great thing to leave in your back yard, or have flowing into our storm drains.
6. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) confirms that hookworms, ringworms, tapeworms and Salmonella can be spread by contact with infected dog waste. When dog poop is left to decay, after a long time (it can take over one year for dog waste to decompose) the poop may “disappear,” but the eggs from these parasites can linger for years in the soil – leaving your family and your pets vulnerable to serious infection.
