Plan to spend about an hour for a first run-through. You may need additional research to complete the assessment fully. You can save at any time and return to the assessment later.
When you’re finished, you’ll get your results along with recommendations and tools. You’ll hear within a few days whether your city has received BETTER CITIES FOR PETS™ certification.
It’s designed to help communities of all sizes. You can focus on your city, a subsection (like your downtown core), or your city plus surrounding areas.
Responses are scored and City Certification is determined by a city's total score. The assessment depends on fact-based self-reporting by cities.
We’re happy to stay in touch to help as you make your city as pet-friendly as possible.
With the Playbook for Pet-Friendly Cities, you’re on your way to a happier, healthier place for people and pets alike.
