St. Pete Launches Pet-Friendly Initiative

In June 2018, Mayor Rick Kriseman signed a proclamation declaring St. Petersburg a pet friendly city. On February 20, in celebration of National Love Your Pet Day, the City is rolling out a new initiative, St. Pete PAWS, to put the proclamation into action.  

The initiate strives to make St. Petersburg a place where pets are happy, welcome and healthy and shine a light on the unconditional love animals give and promote compassion for all our two and four-legged neighbors.
