The Village of Abacoa, a small planned community in Jupiter, Florida, has passed a law targeted at homeowners who don’t pick up after their pets, reports The Palm Beach Post.

Dog owners in the condominium association of 458 units will have to pay a fee of $200 starting August 1 that will pay for DNA Pet World Registry to register the dog’s genetic fingerprint in its database and keep the information on file. puppies, jupiter, florida

If droppings are found in the public areas of the condos, the specimens will be collected and mailed in a plastic tube to the company’s headquarters in Knoxville, Tenn. If a dog is identified, its owner could face a fine of up to $1,000. Those refusing to pay could have a lien placed on their home.

Many condo owners and renters are infuriated by the newest pooch policy.

“This is nuts. They will be testing all kinds of poop. Is this America?” said Troy Holloway, a condo owner.
