Tally is also home to many dog shelters, organizations, and associations. One of the niche organizations in the area is the Tallahassee Big Dog Rescue, a non-profit organization that specializes in rescuing big pups from abuse, abandonment, and euthanasia. Though they do rescue smaller pups, too, they tend to focus on the large and extra-large pooches who need homes and care.
Another organization, the Leon County Humane Society, is the biggest non-kill shelter in the Tallahassee area that rescues over 600 animals annually! It is a non-profit, non-government-funded organization that seeks to re-home, rescue, care for, and rehabilitate stray animals in need of compassion and care.
Lake Ella is also a popular, lakeside park for you and your pooch, though, he must be leashed to enjoy this spot with you.
You and your pup can join the cause to raise funds, walk, jog, or sniff your way along the route, and enjoy a ton of fun activities after - in the past, they've even had taco bars and colorful superheroes for photo opportunities. Join the party for great music, food, furry friends, and a great cause.
Bags for Wags is the event for you and your pooch! The Leon County Humane Society puts on an annual cornhole event every year for you, your four-legged friends, and your two-legged friends, too! All the funds that come in from the pup-tourny will benefit veterinary costs and special care for animals. There are two leagues to join - the pup league and the big dog league (those who want to have fun, and those who came to play). Not only will there be cornhole and dogs, you can snack on your favorite Tally foods, sample Tally beers, bounce on the bounce house, and enjoy the pet vendors too!
