Give a Wag! Gives to Saint Petersburg Shelters

If you’re looking for a fun city with plenty of woof-friendly activities for your furry best friend, look no further than the sun-shiniest city in the sunshine state, St. Petersburg, Florida.

Literally nicknamed the sunshine city, St. Pete is a fun, quirky town with tons of culture, art, food, and plenty of people activities, plus the city has a giant heart for your four-legged pal. This isn’t just obvious by the long list of activities and pet-friendly places they have available for Fluffy and Fido, but also in the extensive shelters and charities they’ve established in the area.

One of the most well-known, the Pet Pal Animal Shelter works to rescue dogs and cats that may otherwise face euthanization because of crowded shelters, illness, or injury. Established in the 1980s, Pet Pal Animal Shelter is driven by the desire to make a difference. Not only do they do they make every effort to educate the public about spaying and neutering their pets, they also provide a no-kill shelter, and have built their own spay and neuter clinic where they offer exams and procedures at more affordable rates. The Pet Pal Animal Shelter focuses primarily on animals facing euthanasia and those needing a second chance at life, a chance they do their best to provide. In 2016, the Pet Pal Animal Shelter adopted out 797 animals!

Another popular shelter in St. Petersburg is the Friends of Strays organization, a non-profit founded in 1978 that’s dedicated to caring for homeless pets. Friends of Strays strives to re-home stray animals in the community, provide shelter and care, and inspire compassion for all animals while establishing what responsible pet guardianship means in the community. Friends of Strays is able to provide care for over 1,000 animals each year, most of them abandoned animals that are sick, injured, or traumatized.

    #2 Fort De Soto Dog Beach

    If your pup is more interested in the wind between their ears and the sand between their paws, then the Fort De Soto Dog Beach is the place to be. With large, fenced in areas for your pup to run free (with separate small and large dog sections), your pup can sprint through the sand, splash through the water, and sniff around with the other salty dogs in the park. Fort De Soto park is the only beach in the area where you can bring your four-legged friend, and it has plenty to do for you and your two-legged pals, as well. With an old Spanish fort to explore, camping facilities, and water-sport amenities, you and your pups surely won't be bored. Unless you plan to camp in the park (where your pup can hang out, too!), it will cost $5 to enter the park -- well worth the price for your dog to get the full-Florida beach experience. The park is open year-round, from 7 am until dusk. All the park rangers ask is that you don't forget to clean up after your pup!

    #3 The Dog Bar

    You heard us right. We said Dog Bar. As in, a bar for you and your dog. Unlike other bars that allow you to bring your pups to human-focused bars, this establishment is specifically built around your pups. While they make sure you and your human friends have things to do - corn hole, ping pong, ski ball, etc - the real focus is the off-leash, fenced in outdoor area where your friendly pup can splash through swimming pools, zig-zag through tunnels, and sprint up and down ramps. They even include cots for those sleepy pups who don't want to miss out on the action even if they need a quick puppy snooze. Even better, a Dog Park supervisor is on site at all times to make sure all the pooches are safe and getting along. 

    Anyone can use the bar, but to bring your pup, you have to pay a few bones for membership, bring proof that your doggo has all his shots and has been snipped in the right spots (spayed and neutered pups, only). 

    Membership is $40 per year for you and your pup, then $20 for each additional dog.

    #4 North Shore Dog Park


    One of the most popular spots in the city is North Shore Dog Park, a beautiful, fenced in area along the Tampa Bay waterfront. With two separate areas - one for small pups and another for bigger dogs - your woofer can run around, play with other pups, and enjoy the sunshine. Admission at this park is free, and what's even better, it has a reputation for being friendly and only hosting well-behaved pups!

    #5 Tails and Ales -- Yappy Hour

    Beers and bow-wows - could it get any better? We don't think so. Join the Friends of Strays monthly pup gathering at Pinellas Ale Works for Yappy Hour (yeah, we love the pup-pun, too). From 6-8 pm, bring yourself and your dog-friends (you can bring your people pals, too)  for delicious human treats - and even more delicious puppy kisses - provided by the Pet Loss Center. Pinellas Ale Works and The Pet Loss Center have teamed up for the event and will donate $1 from each beer sold to the Friends of Strays organization to help benefit the homeless pups on the streets of St. Pete. Don't miss out on Yappy Hour, and don't forget to bring your puppy-pal with you!
