Events, Adoptions, Vets, Shops and Lodging
According to the 2011-2012 APPA National Pet Owners Survey, 62% of U.S. households own a pet. According to the U.S Census Bureau,
the number of households that have children under age 18 is 33.5%. This means there are more homes with pets than children today. To many of us, our pets ARE
our children. They are our companions and our friends. Whether your pet preference is a dog, cat, bird, fish, snake, hamster, whatever, they are all loved by us like family.
Here you will find things to do with your pets, places to care for, shop for, stay with, and even places to adopt a new pet.
The battle of the "Dog person" vs the ""Cat person" rages on, but here in Tavares we are all PET FRIENDLY.
Please consider ADOPTING a new pet today
