What is “National Scoop the Poop Week?”

Our top 5 post of all time was National Scoop the Poop Week published on 3/26/2012. At the time of this post, we announced our support of Hardin County Animal Control because of the upcoming shelter. The new shelter opened on December 16, 2013 and is located at 220 Petersen Drive in Elizabethtown. Stop by to visit the dogs and play with the cats and perhaps take home a new family member. Adoption hours are Monday through Saturday from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m.

National Scoop the Poop Week is recognized by dog waste removal specialists worldwide. It is traditionally observed the 3rd week of April but aPaws, the Association of Professional Animal Waste Specialists, observes Scoop the Poop Week beginning on April 1.

Established to recognize the importance of cleaning up dog waste, it is more of an awareness week during which many dog waste removal organizations offer specials on their spring cleaning rates.

For the past six years, PetCorps has used National Scoop the Poop week as a fundraising vehicle to support various shelters and animal charities. PetCorps’ usual practice is to name a beneficiary and contribute $5 per yard scooped during the awareness week to the selected charity.

This year, PetCorps plans to support shelters in each of the six counties in its service area. So if you have been waiting for a good time to start service with PetCorps, there’s no better time than now. PetCorps has three specials they are offering right now: Spring Cleaning at $43.35, One Month Trial starting as low as $18, and the Daylight Savings Plan, a 6-month plan, starting as low as $120.

As always, National Scoop the Poop Week will take place April 1st through 7th.
