About aPaws

Association of Animal Waste SpecialistsaPaws is a trade association of professional pooper scoopers. Our main concern is making sure pet waste is cleaned up from residential and commercial properties. We uphold a strict standard of what is to be expected of our members in the care and treatment of all animals.

Pet waste is a problem we all face whether we own a dog, cat, horse, goose, etc. Most cities have adopted pooper scooper laws requiring you to clean up after your pet or you will be fined. Having your yard cleaned up by a pooper scooper weekly will save you time and money.
