Maxi Zoo, Ireland’s largest pet retailer, has launched an initiative to encourage dog owners to pick up their dogs’ poop. The campaign, titled #ScoopThePoop, will run for the month of July and aims to educate the public on the importance of picking up after their dog – in the hope to help tackle this topical issue, which is a major problem in all counties across Ireland.
To be proactive, Maxi Zoo will be giving away 1.5 million degradable poop bags to dog owners both in-store and at select regional parks to help keep our parks and streets poop-free. They plan to be on-site to support dog owners and to help create more awareness to encourage responsible dog ownership.
For more information on the #ScoopThePoop campaign, visit the Maxi Zoo Facebook page, @maxizooireland. To receive a roll of Maxi Zoo degradable poop bags, visit your local store or look out for the Maxi Zoo Mascots at regional parks every Saturday for the month of July.
