Pet Friendly Cities in the U.S. and Canada

If you have a dog or cat and are planning to move to a new city, the city’s pet-friendliness can make a big difference in your experience there. You’ll feel better knowing that there are quality veterinarians to keep them health and safe and that there are dog parks to keep your dog socialized. Pet Search Party also feels that other services like pet walkers, groomers and professional pet photographers can be a real value-add to your lifestyle and your free time.  For this reason, we’re giving you a starting place for major cities in the U.S. and Canada.


If you live in one of the following areas and are looking to rescue or adopt, start with our city pages to get a little background first, then use our search functionality.  When adopting, make sure to take these basic things in to account in relation to your city’s pet culture.

  • Summer Temperature and Humidity – The types of summers in the upper Midwest are very different than those in the Southwest United States.  Heavier and larger dogs tend to get very tired quickly when it is hot and humid. 
  • Length of Winter – While all state’s winters are the same, certain breeds like snow and can tolerate a longer cool season.
