Findlay’s Mayor on Why Pets Matter
“Animals are an integral part of many of our lives. They are not just pets but members of our families. Being able to create a safer, healthier, and more pet friendly community continues to support Findlay’s efforts to be a great place to live, learn, work, and play. We are excited to be designated a BETTER CITIES FOR PETS community and find ways to continue to improve our community for all of our citizens and their furry family members.”
