No one should be forced to choose between a pet and a place to live. Or skip healthy exercise because there’s no pet-friendly green space. The BETTER CITIES FOR PETS™ program helps cities be more pet-friendly so everyone can have a healthy life together.
We’re certifying cities to recognize and celebrate those that have put programs and policy in place to make life better for people and pets. Click the map below to see the inaugural list of BETTER CITY FOR PETS™ certified cities.
Pets help people and cities thrive.
They give unconditional love, companionship and purpose.
They get people outside for exercise and social contact.
Pet owners have less depression, anxiety and loneliness.
Pets make neighborhoods feel safer and workplaces more fun.
You can help! Speak up for your pet. When cities are pet-friendly, life is happier and healthier for everyone.
