Pets make life happier and healthier. That’s why the BETTER CITIES FOR PETS™ program helps cities make pets as welcome as possible. And now Mars Petcare is certifying the most pet-friendly places to recognize and celebrate all they do for pets and pet owners.
These cities have all earned BETTER CITY FOR PETS™ recognition thanks to the programs and policies they have in place and their commitment to continuing improvement.
The BETTER CITIES FOR PETS™ program includes a model of 12 key traits for pet-friendly cities. Things like local organizations working to end pet homelessness, available pet-friendly housing, pet amenities like free pet waste bags, and shops and restaurants that make it easy to be out with pets.
Cities that want BETTER CITY FOR PETS™ recognition take our online assessment, a detailed look at the city’s pet demographics, features, pet-friendly programs, and plans for the future.
Want your city certified? Write to your Mayor or City Council and encourage them to visit BetterCitiesForPets.com to get started.

With the Playbook for Pet-Friendly Cities, you’re on your way to a happier, healthier place for people and pets alike.
