Give a Wag! Gives to Fort Pierce Shelters

The beach-lined city of Fort Pierce has long been considered one of the most beautiful spots on the Atlantic Ocean. Though not considered one of the dog-friendliest locations in the state of Florida, Fort Pierce is gradually and consistently adjusting to become a more welcoming, friendly location for pets! 

While commercial retailers like shopping centers, bars, hotels, and restaurants are in the process of catching up, one local rescue organization has made quite the splash in this area. 

This organization, founded in 1988, is known as the Dogs and Cats Forever Sanctuary, Inc. It is a not-for-profit organization that set out with the mission to rescue as many of the 75,000 animals at risk for euthanasia in kill shelters in South Florida as possible. Hosting dogs and cats from the surrounding areas, this shelter does its best to never turn away an animal in need. No animal in their care will ever be sold for research, entertainment, or exploitation. They seek to end animal abuse and neglect, help care for animals in the area, provide foster homes and even host tons of fundraising events to keep their animals well cared for. 

Another huge organization that serves Fort Pierce is the Humane Society of St. Lucie.  This 501(c)3 organization is a nationally accredited shelter for pups in the area. They've had their doors open for business since 1956, and in that time, have grown to rescue, care for, and rehome about 5,000 animals in the community every year. The overall goal of this St. Lucie shelter is to provide immediate care for animals that make their way under their roof and also to help create a better future for all animals throughout the county. In fact, they never turn an animal away!

    #5 Walton Rocks Dog Beach

    Have a dog who prefers running around in the salty water than dressing up for fancy pawties? No problem! Fort Pierce has the perfect solution! The Walton Rocks Dog Beach is one of the only spots in the surrounding area that allows you and your pooch to run free and off-leash together! Frolic through the waves, run around in the sand, or play a game of frisbee together! You can do it all at Walton Rocks Beach. It's free to enjoy this beach, but authorities remind you to clean up after your pooches so others can also enjoy the sand without getting a squishy surprise.
