Vélez-Málaga town hall launched a campaign on Tuesday to encourage dog owners to clean up after their pets.

Some 2,000 kits, including reusable bottles and bags, will be available in town halls and offices in the various towns and villages that belong to Vélez. The kits also come with an instruction leaflet.

Under the slogan 'Look after Vélez-Málaga. It's your home', the town hall hopes to raise awareness of the corrosive effect of dog urine on installations such as lamp posts, as well as the image that dirty streets gives to visitors.

The town hall has also put up posters with QR codes that give further information.
