Wallethub recently released the “2016 Most Pet-Friendly Cities” list, with Orlando ranked No. 1. Analysts used three key dimensions to rank the 100 largest U.S. cities: pet budget, pet health and wellness, and outdoor pet friendliness.
Orlando also landed in the top five for many of Wallethub’s subcategory rankings, including:
- Most Veterinarians per Capita – No. 1,
- Most Pet Businesses per Capita – Tied No. 1,
- Most Animal Shelters per Capita – Tied No. 1, and
- Most Pet-Friendly Restaurants per Capita – No. 5.
The Orlando region provides a perfect environment for pets. Mild climate allows residents and their pets to enjoy outdoor activities year-round. Additionally, the region’s extensive and well-maintained park network means pet owners always have options when taking their furry friends on walks.
