The DooCrew took more crap than ever in 2015! Some highlights include picking up more than 1,600 residential lawns for the second year in a row. We also got rid of #2 problems with dog DNA and PooPrints. We registered more than 1,000 dogs from apartments across five states, bringing the total number of dogs registered in PooPrints by DooGooders to more than 3,000!
In 2015, we processed 456 dog doo DNA samples. 265 were successfully matched to a dog. 165 samples started as a no-match, but 28 of those samples were eventually matched to the right dog once property managers were able to find the culprits and get them registered. The majority of poopertrators came from four properties, which usually indicates tenants hiding dogs and avoiding registration. 52 tests (11%) failed doo to insufficient DNA in the sample.
In the case of no-matches and failed samples, we can help! PooPrints scientists can help identify dogs hiding on the property and can talk you through the sample process. Last month a property in North Dakota turned six no-matches into matches by finding the stinker and getting him registered into the WPR.

Thanks as always for letting us doo good with dog poo!
