Philadelphia Water is looking for two eco-friendly dogs to help keep our waterways clean—one in Fishtown and one in Washington Square West! Spokesdogs are chosen to teach bark-park buddies and their caretakers about the importance of picking up pet waste.

Winning spokesdogs will be ambassadors to the City for living the eco-friendly dog life. We’ll crown the next spokesdogs this fall, and the winning dogs' images will be used on a number of brochures, advertisements, and websites to show people how easy it is to prevent poo-lution!
