Dotting the east coast of Florida, Hollywood is a town drenched in the imagery of sun-soaked beaches, rolling waves, and waterfront views. It's also notable for it's growing pet-welcoming atmosphere. Though the town itself is not primarily the most dog-friendly city in the entire state, it, and it's neighboring cities are quickly becoming destination spots for families seeking pet-friendliness.
As the demand for doggy-vacationing grows, Hollywood has increased its pup-friendly restaurants, shops, bars, and even its amount of doggo shelters and rescues in the area.
The biggest, most well-known shelter in the area is the Broward County Humane Society. Servicing over 7,000 animals in just 2016 alone, this shelter is over 33,000 square feet and has the ability to house over 300 animals at a time. The Humane Society of Broward County is a non-profit, 501(c)3 organization that provides "shelter, aid and responsible adoptions to animals entrusted to our care, and educates the community about respect and kindness to all animals," according to their site.
Another lesser-known, but also relevant organization in Hollywood Florida is the Death Row Dog Rescue, an organization focused on saving animals that are due to be euthanized. The goal of this organization is to save those animals who are on death row and find them loving, caring homes, giving them a second chance at life.
A third organization that services the Hollywood area is Top Paw Rescue, Inc., a non-profit that has been open since 2009. This organization is dedicated to providing rescue, rehab, and loving homes for pets without them.
Are you and your pooch looking for a way to cool off? Of course, you are, it's Florida, after all. We've got some splashin' good news for you! You and your pup can join the Dogs-Only Days at pools and waterparks in Hollywood, Florida. Both Castaway Island and T.Y. Park will have events exclusively for you and your pooch on October weekends. For $5 per pup, you get a 50-minute cool-off session, anywhere between the hours of 9am-5pm. Not only will you be swimming for fun, you can also donate to a great cause, with the Broward County shelters present taking in dog food, treats, blankets, and toys.

Fear not, furry friends, there are plenty of pooch parks in Hollywood, and we're here to let you know which are the best for you and your pup to visit! We'll start with the Hollywoof Dog Park, a cleverly named, quaint little park for your pup.

It wouldn't be Florida without a trip to the beach, and we know you and your pooch won't want to miss out! Hollywood has some of Florida's prime spots, and luckily, it's got one of the best doggo spots around, too. Enjoy the sun, the sand, and fellow canine friends as you romp around the beach with your pooch. The pup beach is open Friday- Sunday year round for you and your pup's enjoyment, with varying hours (check the city's sites for specifics as they change often!).
You can purchase daily passes, or six-month passes if you plan to frequent the beach with Fido. What's extra nice about this beach? It's monitored by a park ranger to help enforce good pup etiquette! Make sure you keep your pooch polite!
If you and your pooch are looking for some fun that can also benefit other pups in need, look no further than the biggest dog walking event in South Florida, the annual Walk for the Animals! Hosted by the Broward County Humane Society, this huge event attracts thousands of pawticipants to join in raising funds for the shelter on a fun doggo walk. In 2016, the walk raised almost $60,000. Join the fun for a 1.5-mile walk with hundreds of other pooches, fun vendors, doggo events post-race, food, fun, and friends! You won't want to miss this chance to bond with your pooch and raise money for the homeless animals in your area.
