things to do in salem ma, pet friendly salem ma

** Edited 10/19/17 9:00 AM EST to add contributions via the Facebook post for this blog **

I have been poking around online and making phone calls trying to compile a list of pet friendly locations in Salem, MA for those visitors who want to bring their fur baby to town. Below is what I have come up with so far…please be advised that calling ahead is still smart and this information is correct to the best of my knowledge as of the publish date of this blog. If you’re a business owner and want your info added (or removed) from the following lists, please feel free to contact me and I’d be happy to adjust.

If you are visiting with you pet, please remember to bring proper ID, paperwork, leashes, etc. and clean up any messes that may be made. You know your animal, so be responsible around others and bear in mind that certain times of year and activities bring lots of crowds. Please be sure your pet can safely be in large groups of people if that’s the case. I hope this helps! Enjoy your trip to the witch city with your four legged ones.
