Give a Wag! Gives to Fresno Shelters

Though this city is not quite climbing the dog-friendliest ranks just yet, there's plenty of fun, Fido-friendly activities in this Central California town. With growing numbers of restaurants that you can bring your pup to, bars where you and your doggo can enjoy the Cali weather outdoors together, and pet-friendly hotels, Fresno is on its way to being a doggone pup-friendly city. 

Some of the organizations in the area are already clearing the way for this much-hoped-for-transition. For example, take the Valley Animal Center. This non-profit, no-kill dog and cat adoption center is a 25,000-square-foot facility located in Central Fresno. They provide low cost spay and neuter procedures, vaccination, a fun dog park for your pooch, and a humane education program. This center annually rehomes and saves thousands of pets in the California area! 

The Central California SPCA is also a large organization that's dedicated to helping the doggos of Central California. Established in 1946, this non-profit humane society is dedicated to promoting the quality of life for animals, providing them with protection, placement, and community education to ensure responsible animal care. 

A few other organizations, like Animal Rescue of Fresno and the Fresno Humane Animal Services are also rooting themselves in the community to provide reliable, safe, and compassionate conditions for Central California's pups.
