Pet waste removal (AKA poop scooping) is a valuable cleaning service sit-stay-play provides for pet parents. Professionals, pregnant women, single individuals, families, senior citizens, farmers and apartment/condo property managers all can benefit from our pet waste removal service. People often ask us people really pay us to scoop their yards or litter boxes and our answer is YES, they do.
Why Schedule Pet Waste Removal Services?
Clean Yard = Healthy People and Dogs
You put a high value on your property and having a yard filled with dog poop will detract from that. Furthermore, it’s super unhealthy for dogs to walk around in their own feces. People with compromised immune systems and children are especially vulnerable to diseases that can be transmitted in dog feces.
Hiring us to clean up the dog poop or cat litter box will give you more time to do the things you want.
Clean Property = Happy People
Rental properties, condominiums and businesses frequented by dogs benefit from keeping pet waste in public areas down to a minimum. Who wants to walk in a courtyard or common area littered with dog poop? This can leave a bad impression on potential renters plus make current dog owners unhappy.

A Little More About This Service
On average, we can clean a normal size city yard in 15-20 minutes. However, for yards that have debris, rough terrain, rocks or pee gravel, high grass, weeds or a heavy accumulation of pet waste, additional time is required. We charge $10 per 5 minutes after the 20 minute mark.
The pet waste we collect is disposed of in biodegradable bags designed for easy breakdown in landfills. sit-stay-play In-home pet sitting & more.LLC disinfects our tools and shoes after each poop scooping visit to reduce contamination and the spread of infection or disease.

Did you know…
- Parvovirus is spread to dogs by direct or indirect contact with dog feces, it is very contagious. In fact, studies have shown that the virus can survive in feces and other organic material such as soil for over a year. It survives extremely cold and hot temperatures.
- Campylobacter germs are found in animal feces. This germ causes gastrointestinal symptoms. It’s usually not dangerous, but can cause severe illness in people with weakened immune systems.
- Leptospira infection is caused from contact with water, food, or soil containing urine from infected animals. This can be very serious if left untreated.
- Salmonella infection. People get this often-severe gastrointestinal infection via contact with animal feces. It can cause severe kidney damage to young children.
Other parasites of cats and dogs:
- Tapeworm. A person can get tapeworm by swallowing an infected flea.
- Hookworm. Hookworms are common in tropical and subtropical areas. Hookworms infest soil contaminated by animal feces. Humans get infected by walking on contaminated soil and by having direct contact with the dog feces or worms. Heavy infections can be serious and can threaten the dogs’ life.
- Cryptosporidiosis. In humans, this parasite causes mild to severe intestinal symptoms like diarrhea. Crytosporidiosis is dangerous to people with weakened immune systems.
- Ringworm isn’t a parasite, but a fungal infection that forms a ring-shaped rash on the skin or a bald patch on the scalp. Ringworm is transmitted by contacting an infected animal directly.
