The City Receives Donation of Pet Waste Stations

The donation will support the City Beautiful’s dog friendly initiative by providing dog owners with additional convenient ways to dispose of their dogs’ waste.

Coral Gables, FL, Oct. 24, 2023 – The Farmer's Dog, the leading direct-to-consumer fresh pet food company, has partnered with DoodyCalls, the leading pet waste management services brand, to donate 40 pet waste stations and 80,000 pet waste bags to the City of Coral Gables. Coral Gables Mayor Vince Lago, city commissioners and DoodyCalls Director of Operations Paul Delaney will attend the donation ceremony to take place in front of the Coral Gables Chamber of Commerce on Nov. 8, 2023, at 11 a.m.

The City of Coral Gables has instituted the use of pet waste stations to provide residents with an easy way to dispose of their pets’ waste. Pet waste stations are placed along open spaces, parks, recreation facilities, public rights of way and plazas based on public input and specific criteria. After the city deployed the first pet waste stations as part of the neighborhood renaissance program, public reception was extremely positive. Many residents provided commentary that the stations provided a solution to a problem that was occurring wherein dog owners deposited their waste bags in the trash pits along the public right-of-way.
