Ormond Beach is a gateway city to one of the most famous beach cities in Florida, Daytona Beach! But more than that, it's a dog-friendly, pawrent paradise. With plenty to do outside for you and your pooch, it's a pup's dream city. A large number of shelter activities in the area doesn't hurt the dog-friendly vibes, either.
One of the most pawpular shelters in the area is the Halifax Humane Society, a large 501(c)3 organization. Founded in 1937, it maintains an open-door policy for animals of all kinds. As a large facility they are able to hold about 350 animals at a time, and on any given day, they're likely full to the brim! Every year, they service over 25,000 animals. With a message of compassion and education, they work to find fur-ever homes for all animals that pass through their doors and aim to educate the community on responsible pet ownership.
Another shelter that's located in a nearby city also services the Ormond Beach area is the Rescued Hearts Animal Shelter, a non-profit, 501(c)3 organization that rescues animals from high-kill shelters in Central Florida, fosters them, and helps them find their forever homes.
Either of these facilities make for a great place to find your next fur-buddy, or to dontate your time or funds to!
