Talk about unintended consequences! As the number of people subscribing to the print version of newspapers has plummeted, owing to how many people now read their news online, from smartphones, tablets, and their computer, animal shelters and animal control agencies are finding themselves without enough newspaper for their dogs, and especially unhousetrained puppies, to poop on.

The San Francisco Animal Care and Control agency has been especially feeling the pinch, as more more people are getting their scoop on the Internet.

Now, it’s the San Francisco Public Library to the rescue! The San Francisco Public Library will be donating all of their newspapers – about 2,000 a month – to the shelter, and SFACC will be picking those newspapers up twice a month.

Said SFACC’s animal care supervisor, Eric Zuercher, “This most likely will take care of 100 percent of our newspaper needs.”

But while this is one library, helping one animal care facility, there are of course countless animal shelters across the country who are likely to be in the same situation.

So, if you still get a print version of the newspaper, take a moment to call your local shelter and see if they need your newspapers. The dogs and puppies need them.

As Zuercher explains, “They are poop machines.”
