A campaign has been launched in Louth to tackle irresponsible dog owners and clean up the streets. Entitled ‘Not on my street’, it aims to encourage dog owners to clear up after their pets and for local people to report offenders.
In recent months there has been a significant increase in dog fouling in Louth, with local organisations, including the Council, making clear that it is not acceptable and will not be tolerated. Dog owners are being reminded that not clearing up after a dog carries a fine of £75.
Leader of the Council, Councillor Doreen Stephenson, said: “Dog fouling is a blight on our community and it will not be tolerated. This new campaign will help us to catch those irresponsible dog owners who fail to clean up after their pets.
It is vital that local people help us by reporting offenders so we can track them down. By working together we can put a stop to dog fouling once and for all.”
