You will need one PooPrints DNA Collection Kit per dog that is sent to our lab for analysis and registration in the database. The cost of the DNA Registration Kit is passed on to the dog owner.
Once the registration of all the dog profiles are in the database, you will notice an immediate reduction in pet waste in your community since owners know they can now be easily identified and fined for not cleaning up after their dogs.
When a waste pile is found, a sample is collected using the Waste Sample Collection Kit and mailed to the lab. The lab processes the sample comparing it to the dogs in the database and matches it to the correct dog.
Result turn around time is 5-10 days from sample receipt. Results are made available to you when you log into your account. Matching the sample with the registered dog allows you to enforce your existing pet bylaw and pass the cost of the waste analysis on to the poopetrator.
With DNA Identification through the PooPrints program, communities now have a way to identify irresponsible pet owners and create greener, cleaner, safer environments for everyone.
