Becoming a Local Pets Welcome!
N ewcomer ’ s S pecial S ection
If you treat your furry friends like family, you’ll fit right in here! With outstanding veterinarian care, pet-friendly hotels and outings, and extensive outdoor parks and trails, Charlottesville is the ideal location for people with pets. Take a stroll along the brick-paved Historic Downtown Mall, where your pup will be happy to find refreshment at the many water bowls shop owners place outside of their stores just for this purpose. During the warmer months, well-behaved pets are allowed to join their owners in the outdoor seating areas of some of the area’s finest restaurants. Local vineyards are also becoming more pet friendly, giving you countless options to enjoy the sights and sounds of Jefferson’s Virginia with your furry friend. Be sure to take your pooch to one of the local dog parks where they can frolic offleash. Darden Towe Park, Azalea Park and Chris Greene Lake Park all include areas specific for dogs. While pets are allowed within the nearby Shenandoah National Park, there are some trails where pets are prohibited, so be sure to check nps.gov/shen before you head out on your hike.
