Give a Wag! Gives to Tallahassee Shelters

Tallahassee, the Florida state capitol that goes by many different names, and is known for many different things. For instance, it's the home base for thousands of students at Florida State University and is home to the Florida state government. Lovingly nicknamed Tally, this spot is the perfect place for you and your pup to visit and explore! Though not climbing the charts on pet-friendliest cities yet, Tally still has plenty of shops, restaurants, puppy parks, hiking trails, museums and more, that you and your hound can explore together. 

Tally is also home to many dog shelters, organizations, and associations. One of the niche organizations in the area is the Tallahassee Big Dog Rescue, a non-profit organization that specializes in rescuing big pups from abuse, abandonment, and euthanasia. Though they do rescue smaller pups, too, they tend to focus on the large and extra-large pooches who need homes and care. 

Another organization, the Leon County Humane Society, is the biggest non-kill shelter in the Tallahassee area that rescues over 600 animals annually! It is a non-profit, non-government-funded organization that seeks to re-home, rescue, care for, and rehabilitate stray animals in need of compassion and care.

    #2 Tallahassee Dog Parks

    There's no shortage of puppy parks for you and your pal in Florida's Capitol, and many of them are paw-sitively packed with sniffin' pups looking to make new friends. The Tom Brown Park is a popular pick and located right off of Capital Circle in Tally. It has lots of hills, plenty of trails, and of course, an off-leash dog park for your pooch. As a note, make sure you keep your pooch leashed in the other, non-dog-park-fenced area. It even features a mini-lake for you and your pup to enjoy. San Luis Mission Dog Park is a good choice for you and your pup, as well! There are plenty of trees, lots of shade, and ample water for you and your pup to drink. Make sure to watch out for mud after the rain though, as most of the park is dirt!  

    Lake Ella is also a popular, lakeside park for you and your pooch, though, he must be leashed to enjoy this spot with you.

    #3 Goodwood Museum & Gardens

    This attraction is for a pup with refined tastes, the bow-wow who appreciates a splash of culture! Take a look at the Goodwood Museum and Gardens with your leashed, well-behaved buddy. This 16-acre site was built in the 1830s and features a large main house, tours of the mansion, and plenty of lush garden areas. Your polite pup is welcome on the grounds with you to explore, although, is likely not permitted to join you and your two-legged friends on the tours. Check out this event with your pooch for only $12!

    #4 Walk n Wag

    If you and your pooch love to walk for a cause, then Tally has just the pup-event for you. Join the Leon County Humane Society for their annual Walk n Wag event! This pup-walk-for-a-cause helps raise awareness about animal cruelty and what you, your four-legged friend, and your two-legged friends can do in the community to prevent it. 

    You and your pup can join the cause to raise funds, walk, jog, or sniff your way along the route, and enjoy a ton of fun activities after - in the past, they've even had taco bars and colorful superheroes for photo opportunities. Join the party for great music, food, furry friends, and a great cause.

    #5 Bags for Wags

    Cornhole? Pups running around everywhere? Friends, food, and fun? 

    Bags for Wags is the event for you and your pooch! The Leon County Humane Society puts on an annual cornhole event every year for you, your four-legged friends, and your two-legged friends, too! All the funds that come in from the pup-tourny will benefit veterinary costs and special care for animals. There are two leagues to join - the pup league and the big dog league (those who want to have fun, and those who came to play). Not only will there be cornhole and dogs, you can snack on your favorite Tally foods, sample Tally beers, bounce on the bounce house, and enjoy the pet vendors too!
