Pet Friendly OC

A great vacation often includes the entire family - including the four-legged family members. Whether you're visiting The OC for the first time or you're a SoCal local wanting to experience more fun-in-the-sun, rest assured that Orange County is one of the most pet-friendly destinations in America!

A warm welcome awaits you and your four-legged friends as soon as you arrive in Orange County, as pet-friendly John Wayne Airport offers many pet relief areas throughout the terminal. And as you venture out into The OC, you'll see that there are endless energizing activities for your pet, from playing on the dog beach to cruising the art museums. So take your favorite furry member of the family with you to enjoy the finer things of life.  Looking for pet-friendly hotels and places to stay in Orange County?

Dog beaches in Orange County are everywhere! Dogs are especially welcome in Huntington Beach, aka "Surf City USA." Huntington Beach boasts one of the best dog beaches in California, and one of the few dog friendly beaches where dogs are allowed to play in the water. Dog Beach is over one mile of pooch-paradise, where canines go to "unleash" hours worth of running, playing, swimming, digging, barking, sunbathing and, often times, even surfing! You don't have to have four legs to enjoy Dog Beach. Visitors often choose to visit HB's Dog Beach just to witness the sometimes hilarious displays of tennis-ball chasing, hole-digging, water-frolicking and general "dogs being dogs" behavior.

For residents, the County of Orange offers convenient pet adoptions online, complete with pictures and contact information.
