Best Practices for Pet Owners

Pet waste is natural but with our roads and efficient drainage systems, dog waste has an easy and direct route to our lakes and streams. Please remember that the placement and/or collection of animal waste on public or private property may constitute a hazard to the health, safety and general welfare of the community. The Township asks that every resident curb their dog and remove any waste left behind. 

Please be reminded that your dog may not run at large and if they do, Animal Control may be called. Keep your animals safe by keeping them contained.
