This just in: Pet Butler, the nation’s leading pet waste cleanup service and the “Official pet cleanup service for the Texas Rangers,” has scooped up it’s main local competitor, Shovel Jockey. You must check out the turd-o-meter on Pet Butler’s website. Not to be believed. Full release below.Pet Butler, the nation’s leading pet waste cleanup service, has acquired the pet waste operations of Shovel Jockey Inc, one of its remaining competitors in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, the two companies announced today.
 

The acquisition further increases the penetration of Pet Butler into its home market, where it now offers service to more than 95 percent of the metropolitan area. The acquisition, coupled with rapid growth in its franchise operations, has solidified Pet Butler’s standing as the largest pet waste cleanup service in the nation.
 

Shovel Jockey, which began in 2000 as a pet waste cleanup company, has since evolved into a company offering a broad range of services to homeowners’ associations, explained Kermit Monzingo, owner of Shovel Jockey. By selling the pet waste cleanup segment of the company to Pet Butler, “it allows us to focus more on what has become our core business,” Monzingo said.
 

The Shovel Jockey pet waste cleanup customers that Pet Butler now services are located throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
 

Pet Butler, which proudly bills itself as “#1 in the ‘#2’ business,” charges a small per-visit fee for its technicians to collect dog and cat waste, carry it away, and dispose of it properly. Whether in yards or public spaces, accumulated domestic animal waste can ruin lawns and present a significant source of water pollution. Pet Butler currently has operations in 20 states, and recently announced that it has reached the 70th franchise milestone.
 

“We were comfortable selling our pet waste operations to Pet Butler, because we have a similar business philosophy,” Monzingo said. “Pet Butler is well respected and a good brand, which is proven by its impressive growth. I am confident that our customers will be in good hands.”
 

“The acquisition of the Shovel Jockey pet waste customers is part of our continuing effort to build the Pet Butler brand so that people think of us when they think of dog poop,” said Matt “Red” Boswell, the CEO (Chief Excrement Officer) of Pet Butler. “Both in North Texas and across the country, we want to be synonymous with clean yards and quality service.”
