Pledge your pooch, get a free bandana

Did you know that our local rivers and streams have fecal bacteria that exceed clean water standards? According to a recent DNA study, dog waste alone accounts for almost 15% in some local streams.

And it’s not just in parks and public spaces where you need to clean up after your dog. Runoff from your own backyard (and your neighbors’ yards) also ends up in your local stream. Please put your dog waste into bags and dispose of it in your garbage.

What can you do to keep our water safe and clean? Follow these steps:

  • Take the Canines for Clean Water pledge at and receive a FREE bandana.*

    Enter your fashionable hound in our photo contest.
  • Pick up after your pet.

  • Throw pet waste into a garbage can.

The Canines for Clean Water program is sponsored by the Tualatin Basin Partners for Clean Water. Help keep our water clean for future generations of humans and canines alike.
