Jun 05, 2013
How do you deal with dog owners who don't poop and scoop? The town of Brunete, on the outskirts of Madrid, teamed up with McCann on a limited budget to decrease the amount of dog poop on the town's streets. The agency employed 20 volunteers to patrol the streets, observing who left the mess out, then asking for the pet's name in a friendly way. They then looked up the owners' addresses via the Town Hall databases, and packaged up the dog poop as "Lost Property," to return it via courier. According to the agency, there has been a 70% drop in the amount of poop on Brunete's streets.
