Pet Friendly Downtown Campaign

8 Jun 2023

Main Street Elizabethton is excited to launch the Pet Friendly Downtown campaign showcasing that your pets are welcome in Downtown Elizabethton! Twenty-three downtown businesses and restaurants look forward to hosting your pets when you are shopping downtown, attending an event, or simply going for a walk throughout the district.

Kathy Fraser, Friends of the Elizabethton-Carter County Animal Shelter and Main Street Elizabethton member is excited about the launch of the Pet Friendly Downtown program. “I love coming downtown and bringing my dog for a great doggy day out. It is so nice to be welcomed into so many businesses!”

Main Street is working with the City of Elizabethton on long-term goals to provide pet friendly amenities downtown, such as sanitation and hydration stations. In the meantime, Main Street Elizabethton encourages you to take advantage of the following:

·        Look for the Pet Friendly Downtown sticker showcased on business front doors

·        Find water bowls at pet friendly businesses to keep your pet cool in the heat

·        Bring bags to clean up after your pet and dispose of in provided trash cans

·        Ensure your pet is on a leash to keep downtown visitors and other pets safe

Each month a pet friendly business will be featured on social media to highlight their support and care for your pets. To discover and visit pet friendly businesses, follow @DowntownElizabethton on Facebook and Instagram.
