It is believed that Girard was named after Stephen Girard, an affluent banker who was born in France but lived in America. He is estimated to be the fourth richest American in the country's history! He even saved the American government from financial collapse in 1812.

Visiting Girard with a pooch in tow? There's one pet-friendly lodging option in town: the Days Inn & Suites Youngstown / Girard Ohio. If you want more choice, Youngstown is just 5 miles away from Girard and offers more pet-friendly lodging accommodations.

No need to travel outside of town to find quality vet care, though! Girard has its own veterinary emergency center and pet cancer center, so your pup will be in good hands in case of any unexpected emergency. There's also a center here which specializes in spaying and neutering.

Girard doesn't have much else to offer pet owners, but furtunately, its surrounding areas are home to tons of dog-friendly fun! Around 7 miles from Girard, you can visit the Ford Nature Center, which features well-maintained hiking trails to explore with your leashed pooch. Be sure to bring plenty of water and waste bags with you for your excursion here.

You and your hound are sure to fall head over paws in love with Girard!
