Scoop the Poop
Pet waste is a problem in our common areas when pet owners do not clean up after their pets. Not only is it violating the PCVA covenants to leave your pet’s waste laying in the common areas, the poop is a nuisance and can carry viruses and bacteria that are harmful to humans and animals. Please clean up after your pet in common and homeowner areas.
Pet Feces a Danger to Our Water
Dog owners, please take responsibility and clean up after your pets in Pine Creek common areas (sidewalks, roads, greenways, etc.). Dog poop smells bad and no one likes stepping in it, but it is more than an inconvenience: it is a legitimate danger. Dog poop dangers come in several forms:
- It pollutes waterways and is in the same EPA category as oil and mine runoff!
- It poisons grass and lawns.
- It carries hookworms, ringworms, tapeworms, and more.
- It transmits human diseases, too!
