The City of Daytona Beach has received a Pet-Friendly Certification through the “Better Cities for Pets” program from Mars Petcare. The certification recognizes cities that have met or exceeded pet-friendliness standards. The effort to earn the certification was spearheaded by Daytona Dog Beach, Inc., a local nonprofit committed to the welfare of pets. 

Certified cities have programs and policies that make it easier for pets and their owners to live a happy, healthy life together. Daytona Beach met its benchmarks across various traits that support pet-friendly shelters, homes, parks and businesses. The certification recognized Daytona Beach’s efforts to welcome pets, offer pet-friendly programs and amenities and help keep people and pets together in tough times. Daytona Beach’s multiple programs and policies to support a pet-friendly community include an animal tethering policy and mandatory spay and neuter ordinance.
