The Responsible Dog Owners of Canada are holding a clean-up event along Abbot Road near Granite Ridge on Sunday, September 14 from 9am-11am. The area has become an informal off-leash dog park on land that’s slated for development.
“Join us in our fall clean up days. We do this twice a year. Once in the spring and the second time in the fall. Most of us dog owners are very good in cleaning up after our dogs, unfortunately not as good cleaning up after ourselves. You wouldn’t believe the number of Tim Horton’s cups we collect on the clean up days. These events also help get our name out and what we do. It gives us an opportunity to answer people’s questions.”
“During the morning we hand out the bags and gloves to dog owners. They are the ones who do all the work picking up the garbage etc. Their reward is a much cleaner park and their dogs get dog cookies.”
