New Philadelphia, Ohio - A young entrepreneur is using his pet waste removal service to pick up some extra cash for the Tuscarawas County Humane Society.
Squat Cops owner and founder Jacob Bruce says any Tuscarawas County customer who signs up for service during the month of April will have 10 percent of their monthly bill donated to the county humane society. He says this is a way for them to give back to an organization that goes above and beyond to rescue animals from bad situations.
“You have the humane society and their humane officers that are going out there and making a difference. If they’re doing their part, I really feel it’s our duty to do our part and really make this county a better place to live in,” he says.
Bruce says the giving will continue every month the customer continues the service for up to a year.
“So, let’s say you sign up and your bill is $48 a month, I would take 10 percent of that every month and we will be writing a check out to the humane society up until a year that they maintain service,” he explains.
Bruce says their service is available on a month-to-month basis with no contract required. He says they do pickup weekly, or customers can opt for two pickups per week for an additional charge.
“Our base price for one dog for about three-fourths of an acre, just under an acre, we do about $12 for one dog, and then we charge an extra $3 for every dog after that, so one dog would be $12 a week, $48 a month. Two dogs would be $15 a week, $60 a month and so on,” he says.
Bruce says people can give them a call at 330-260-9990 or email email@example.com for more information.
