While the city itself leaves plenty of room for pup adventures, a lot of the dog friendly attitude that's been cultivating has much to do with the shelters in the area.
One of the biggest shelters that serves Delray Beach is the Florida Humane Society. Though it's located in Pompano Beach, it services all the palm beach counties in South Florida. A 501(c)3, this non-profit organization is a no-kill, no time-limit organization that spays, neuters, and adopts out about 3,500 animals per year! Another shelter in the area is the Animal Rescue Force of South Florida, Inc. This non-profit organization is devoted to saving homeless animals from both the streets and from high-kill shelters. They ensure that animals are kept in loving foster homes until they're able to be adopted out to responsible families.
Bring your four-legged buddy for a paw-some day out. Be sure to participate in some of the mini-events, check out the many stands that will be in attendance and enjoy some of the live music!
