Annual and day passes are available for a small fee.

If you are just visiting Stoughton and need a place to stay, the Days Inn Stoughton is happy to host you and your furry friend. In the event that your pet needs medical attention or just a yearly check-up, Stoughton has five veterinary clinics to care for your furry friend.
