In an effort to reduce dog bites on postal workers, the USPS has launched a program that identifies homes with potentially dangerous dogs with a paw print sticker adhered to the mailbox.
Postal service customers that share their homes with dogs may soon notice a paw print on their mailbox. The stickers are part of a Postal Service program that began in select cities last November and continues expanding. The program is aimed at preventing dog attacks on letter carriers.
Letter carriers will place the paw print stickers on mailboxes, where appropriate. A yellow sticker indicates a dog resides at the next delivery address. An orange sticker means a dog resides at that address.
If a customer objects to having a paw sticker placed on their mailbox, he or she can call their local post office to request it be removed.
