Capture one of the many heart-warming moments you share with your pet each day and send a picture for others to enjoy. Plano’s Doo the Right Thing Dog Photo Contest is back with a mission: cuteness for a cause, increase pet waste disposal.
It’s a treat to explore the great outdoors with your pet, but it’s important to be good stewards of our environment at the same time. Picking up and properly trashing dog waste helps us all. When left behind, rain and sprinkler runoff wash "doo" into storm drains carrying disease-causing germs that can potentially affect our drinking water. Learn more at plano.gov/petwaste.
This contest encourages everyone to use poo bags when walking your dog. Reused plastic newspaper sleeves, produce and grocery bags work just as well. Tie soiled poo bags and dispose of them in the trash.
Show your dedication to “doo-ing” the right thing and send a favorite photo of your precious pup to SEED@plano.gov by Friday, June 24. Include your full name and your pup’s name in the email. The contest is open to Plano residents only.
Voting for the top photos is on the Live Green in Plano Facebook page from Thursday, June 30 through Friday, July 8. Winners will be featured in upcoming Live Green in Plano publications. Their humans will receive cool prizes too!
