Dog Poo Fairy

There is no such thing as the Dog Poo Fairy!

In an effort to keep our community, beaches, Harbour, parks and foreshore clean and tidy Mosman Council encourages residents and visitors to pick up after their dog.

We all know picking up dog poo isn’t a glamorous job but picking up after your dog is the responsible thing to do and it is also a requirement under the Companion Animals Act 1998.

If you leave the dog poo on the ground, the Dog Poo Fairy isn’t going to come and pick it up! In fact you can actually be fined.

Seeing (and smelling) dog poo on the street, foot paths, in the parks or on the beach is not pleasant. During rain dog poo may be washed into the stormwater system or directly into the harbour polluting our favourite swimming spots, and potentially becoming a health risk for those that may be more susceptible.

Think about your actions, think about your community and do the right thing. Picking up after your dog will help to keep our streets, parks and beaches clean.

There’s no such thing as the Dog Poo Fairy! Bag it and bin it for a cleaner, healthier Mosman.
