Hey I'm Amanda, but most of my friends call me Jonesy. I've had dogs of all sizes and breeds and am comfortable with almost any pet (snakes still scare me). My family has raised goats, chickens, geese, ducks, and a few miniature donkeys. Thankfully, I've yet to come across an animal that does not like me.

Hi, my name is Cassidy! I've grown up always having at least one dog, and I know how important they are as members of the family. With three dogs of my own, (Doberman, Terrier mix, and a Pit Bull), I know how important getting plenty of exercise is for all pups.

Dog Boarding in Fayetteville

Fayetteville, Arkansas, is home to a couple of great animal shelters that help care for and house animals while they are waiting for new, permanent homes. The Lester C Howick Animal Shelter and the Humane Society of the Ozarks are both home to large quantities of animals that need homes.

The Lester C Howick Animal Shelter is run by Washington County. Also referred to as the Washington County Animal Shelter, the shelter finds homes for almost 1,000 animals each year. The shelter asks that all potential owners fill out adoption forms, so they can try to match each pet with the best home. Animals at the shelter are given shelter, food, and medical care, which can get very costly. The shelter runs off donations, fundraisers, and adoption fees - which are relatively low compared to many other animal shelters across the country.

The Humane Society of the Ozarks seeks to provide homeless animals in the region a safe shelter until they can be placed in loving homes. Since its founding at the Fayetteville Humane Society in 1944, the shelter has expanded from a city animal shelter to a regional operation that takes in more animals and helps around a larger area. Now, animals are fostered or stay at local veterinarians or doggie daycare facilities because the Humane Society of the Ozarks doesn’t have an actual facility.

If you are looking for a new pet in the Fayetteville area, consider filling out an adoption application at one of these two animal shelters to give a cat or dog a second chance.

As the only cave near Fayetteville that allows dogs to explore, the War Eagle Cavern on Beaver Lake is a favorite spot for Fayetteville's local dog lovers. With each tour lasting about 30 minutes, you will get a hands-on experience here that you just can't get anywhere else.

There are rules about what you can and can’t do in the caves, but War Eagle Cavern is much more lenient than other caves in the area. You can touch the cave walls and you can bring your dog down in the caves with you, as long as he is on a leash.

Tickets are $16 for adults and $9 for kids aged four to 11. Children three and under are free.

IAMS Dog Park

With convenient access from Bryce Davis Park’s trails, the IAMS Dog Park is a local favorite for our four-legged companions. The off-leash dog park has two spaces: one for small dogs and one for large dogs. The park includes water fountains for both humans and canines, as well as dog waste stations and covered seating.

There is a pond at the dog park where your pooch can swim during the warm months.

Like all dog parks, there are a few rules to abide by when visiting IAMS Dog Park. The park asks that children under eight don’t enter the off-leash area for safety reasons. Please leave all food, aggressive dogs, dogs in heat, and small puppies at home.
