As a dog lover (and former owner) pet adoption might seem like a good idea. However, I cannot help but notice that large amounts of dog waste are a problem in many neighborhoods.
It would seem that many who choose to adopt pets do not understand the responsibilities that are required of them.
Perhaps your paper could start a series on the proper care of dogs — exercise, immunizations, clean-up laws, etc., to address these issues.
