Alto is a charming and beautiful rural community located in Kent County, which was founded way back in 1845. If you are interested in history, Alto is the perfect place to visit, with historical buildings and the traditional Alto Harvest Festival hosted every year in September. In addition, Alto is also well-known for Boulder Ridge Wild Animal Park, where all the family can have fun together. Due to its size, Alto does not have any veterinary clinics of its own for your dog, but you can find several nearby in Grand Rapids.


Since Alto is all about wildlife and the outdoors, dog owners and their playful pups can get out and enjoy the fresh air, with sniff-tastic parks to explore. All you have to do is pack your bag with a doggie bowl and some treats, as well as your pup’s favorite toys and you are all set!


Alto is a small town, but there are plenty of surrounding areas you can go to on an adventure with your furry friend. This includes the stunning Caledonia Lakeside Park, only 12 miles away, with green grass, trees and lake views. This is connected to the puptastic Paul Henry Thornapple Trail, which runs through three nearby counties to Alto – perfect for ruffing it! You can also head to Middleville State Game Area, which has lots of fun hikes to enjoy with your pup on leash.
