Clean Up Dog Waste

Pet waste is natural but with our roads and efficient drainage systems, dog waste has a fairly 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 and safety and general welfare of the community. The Township kindly asks that every resident curb their dog and remove any waste left behind. Also, please be reminded that your dog may not run at large and if so, the dog catcher may be called.

Thank you in advance for adhering to these guidelines. Together we can help to keep Hempfield a safe environment to live and raise your family, dogs included.
