San Francisco's animal control agency is relying on donated newspapers to solve pooping puppies problem.

It seems digital newspaper subscriptions and smartphones have cut the once abundant supplies of old newspapers.
 
Animal Care & Control has been relying on public contributions and San Francisco Chronicle  donations to line the cages of shelter puppies needing potty training.
 
Now, the San Francisco Public Library is donating old newspapers to make sure the shelter has a consistent paper stream.
 
Animal control will pick up the newspapers twice a month.
 
Agency supervisor Eric Zuercher says the arrangement with the library has solved a big problem, noting puppies are poop machines.
