Visitor Resources - For Your Pet
Bringing your four-legged friend along? The members listed below can help make sure they enjoy their visit as much as you do.
Looking for a place to exercise your pooch? You'll find dog parks in three locations in the islands -- two on San Juan and one on Orcas Island.
Eddie & Friends Dog Park is a two-acre site located less than a mile from downtown Friday Harbor on Mullis Street, between Browne's Home Center and the fire station. It's operated by San Juan Island Parks & Recreation, has off-street parking, is free, and is open daily from 7:00 a.m. until dusk. A small section of the park is fenced separately as an area for optional use by small and/or older dogs that may not be comfortable cavorting with larger and more energetic dogs. The park has a double-gated entry section for safety, benches and shade trees for the comfort of humans, and a supply of tennis balls and a few frisbees. A second dog park is located at Roche Harbor Resort next to the small gas station.
Orcas Island's dog park is located adjacent to the Port of Orcas Day Park at the corner of Mt. Baker and North Beach Roads just north of Eastsound. It's about an acre in size with grassy and wood-chipped areas, dog water, Mutt Mitts, a dog "toy box" and picnic tables.
Since 1982 The Animal Protection Society has provided abandoned or relinquished dogs and cats a warm kennel, food, health-care, kindness and adoptable animals a new responsible, forever home. The APS is solely funded by private donations with the exception of a nominal portion of dog license fees.
