Drat! There is No Poop Fairy!

One of six new signs along West Cliff Drive.

The city of Santa Cruz just launched an anti-dog poop campaign and started with West Cliff Drive where there are currently six of these lovely signs posted. They plan to put up to 30 all around Santa Cruz. They got the inspiration from a similar campaign by the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office in Colorado.

Of course bacteria help decompose dog poop and might be considered a Poop Fairy of sort. However, as the sign says: dog poop takes much longer to biodegrade than wild animal poop and it’s a lot stinkier!

  1. Where/how can I get one of these signs? Summer is coming and people just don’t respect their neighbors property. I don’t blame the dog.

  2. Awesome idea!
    Where can i see the rest of the designs?
    Would love to start something similar here in mumbai.
    Thank u for the inspiration.

  3. I’m a host at a RV park in Arizona very interested, Residents and Dog-Poo are always an issue!!
