Treasurer, Ashland Park HOA
“Ashland Park began DNA testing October, 2012 after repeatedly having to warn dog owners of the policy to pick up after their pets. Dogs, residents, and children were having to watch where they stepped and inadvertently tracking through the waste. Compliant dog owners and non-dog owners were complaining of having to pay for contractors to pick up dog waste of irresponsible owners. Finally we resorted to PooPrint testing and have No Regrets!
How could we do that? APC (Ashland Park Condominiums) pet policy is clear. And because we address to all new residents that there are no exceptions to “no poop on the grounds.” We charge a $100 testing fee if a match is found plus $200 fine. The policy permits only two strikes. With the second fine, the dog is evicted from the property.
We have had no complaints from new residents and now we have no complaints from anyone who has stepped in, paid for, or had to encounter poop on the ground. We agree this is the best program the HOA has implemented in the complex.”
