Surprising to me, St. Petersburg did not make the TOP 10 list. See who did…
Tampa was ranked the sixth most pet-friendly city in the U.S., according to a report by WalletHub.
St. Petersburg was ranked as #41, despite the many dog-friendly parks and bars…
WalletHub, evaluated the pet-friendliness of the 100 largest cities in the nation. The site weighed factors in three main areas:
- Pet budget
- Pet health & wellness
- Outdoor pet-friendliness
The pet budget category compared dog insurance premiums, veterinary care costs and the minimum pet-care provider rate across cities. The pet health & wellnesscategory looked at factors including veterinarians per capita, pet-friendliness of the rental market and dog-friendly shops per capita. Finally, the outdoor pet-friendliness category looked at factors like dog-friendly trails per capita, weather and walkability. According to The Tampa Bay Times.
Here is the list of the top 10 pet-friendly cities:
