What: A dog waste-removal, pet-sitting and pet photography service

Address: Home business,

2477 Damon Road

Contact: 883-POOP

Name: Destiny Casci

What she does: Pet-sitting, pet photography and waste removal for dogs and horses. Her mother, Janice Casci, does the business side.

Pets: Four cats, two dogs.”Most of the ones we found on the side of the road, and they were dying.”

Education: Going to Western Nevada College, studying criminal justice and photography

What SHE uses to clean the waste: “This is going to sound really gross, but we use our hands. We use a leather glove with latex over it. It’s actually a lot faster than trying to scoop it and get it into a bag.” Then she collects and disposes of it.

The worst yard she’s seen: “I don’t know if there’s a worst one. It’s all dog poop.”

Reactions to her job: Her friends check to make sure she gets paid and, “if they’re dog people, they’re like, ‘Oh my gosh, you do that? Can I give you a call?'”
