Apartments turn to DNA to track dog droppingsOctober 26, 2018
By The Associated Press
INDIANAPOLIS — Several Indianapolis apartment complexes have turned to DNA to catch dog owners who fail to clean up after their pets.
They’ve employed a company called Poo Prints that takes cheek swabs from renter’s dogs to collect DNA samples of the pets.
If maintenance crews find dog droppings anywhere on the apartment’s property, they collect a sample that’s sent for analysis. Renters found to have failed to clean up after their canine face fines.
One of those apartments is 360 Market Square. Property manager Katie Wright tells WISH-TV that renters must keep an eye on their dog everywhere at the complex.
She says renters who don’t clean up their dog’s feces could face fines starting anywhere from $200 to $1,000, depending on whether carpeting, flooring, furniture or other property is soiled.
