JUPITER, Fla. — A Florida condominium association hopes dog DNA samples will help them determine which pet owners aren’t picking up after their pooches.

The Village of Abacoa Condominium Association says cleaning up after dog owners who don’t clean up after their dogs costs $10,000 to $12,000 a year.

Starting Aug. 1, residents in the Jupiter community must each pay a $200 fee to keep the dogs’ genetic information on file at the DNA Pet World Registry. Dog droppings found in common areas will be collected and mailed to the Tennessee-based company for comparison.

The association’s property manager says any owner whose dog matches the poop sample will be fined up to $1,000 or a lien could be placed on their homes. A dog that’s a persistent problem could be confiscated.
