Give a Wag! Gives to Saint Augustine Shelters

St. Augustine is known for its establishment as the oldest, continuously occupied settlement of European Origin of the United States, but it's making its way toward a pawesome new claim to fame - a pet-friendly city with a giant love for doggos! The old, historic city is moving toward a more dog-encouraged vibe, offering pet owners the ability to walk the aged, history-rich streets with a pup in tow and increasingly making their pubs, restaurants, and attractions more pooch-friendly.

A lot of this is due largely to the dog-shelters, organizations, and non-profits that are being built up in the area. 

The S.A.F.E. Pet Rescue Inc., one of the most popular shelters in the area, was founded in 2008 with the goal of saving adoptable dogs and cats from euthanasia in the Northeast Florida Area. Since their inception, they've rescued about 7,000 lives! Their efforts are focused on rescuing pets from facilities that are unable to house them indefinitely, hosting them in their shelter or finding foster families. 

Another popular organization is Wags & Whiskers, a non-profit dog rescue that uses volunteers to help rehome hundreds of dogs and cats in the area! They spay or neuter all animals that come through their doors, as well as provide them with the necessary vaccinations. They spend a great deal of time focusing on sheltering, fostering, and fundraising to keep homeless animals off the street.

    #1 Doggy Beaches

    Let's face it - the main reason you're in Florida in the first place is for the beaches. So, why wouldn't you want to bring your pup to join in the fun? Luckily, there are tons of dog-encouraged beaches in St. Augustine that allow you to bring your water-loving, sand-sniffing pooch. Check out Vilano Beach, a touch northeast of St. Augustine. It's located on the scenic and historic A1A byway. Take your polite, quiet pup here to enjoy the sand and surf, just make sure you clean up after him before you go! Another great option is Crescent Beach, just three short miles away from St. Augustine Beach, where there's plenty of sand and surf for you and Fido to explore. While visiting this beach, make sure you keep your pups leashed at all times.

    #5 Pups & Sups Surfing Contest

    Hang ten - rather, hang 20! You and your surfing pooch can participate in the special Pups and Sups surfing competition each November! The two of you can team up to have a blast on the water, surf some waves, and help raise money for K-9s For Warriors, an organization that provides service animals to veterans and returning military personnel.

    Never surfed before? Your pup doesn't have a board? No worries, dudes! You and your doggo can borrow a surfboard to catch some sweet swells. Pups will be divided into three classes based on their weight. Come out to snag some surf, splash in the water with your four-legged friend, and support a great cause!
