1855 was a big year for Kansas -- it marked the establishment of a settlement called Andale. It was also the year that the railroad was built here. Andale was first settled by disabled veterans as part of the Homestead Act, which encouraged veterans to take up land and build their own homes. As a result, you will see that the area is covered in post-war era buildings which have a style all their own. This is a proud community full of honest, hard-working people -- and their pups, of course!
Despite having a population of less than 1,000, Andale is still considered a city, and is part of the Sherman Township. Andale is conveniently situated just a half-hour from Wichita, which means you can enjoy a quaint, small-town lifestyle while remaining close to all the amenities of the big city.
Andale is also a little more than half an hour away from Cheney Reservoir, a gorgeous state park where you and Fido can enjoy a number of outdoor activities, including fishing, bird watching, boating, camping, and so much more! Dogs on a leash no longer than 10 feet are welcome to explore most of the park with their owners, apart from the swimming areas. Service animals are not subject to the same restrictions.
Andale, Kansas is the pawfect place to hang your hat, or make a pit stop on your way to Wichita!
