Uptown is Pet Friendly!

Pet owners rejoice! The summer students at your business improvement association have been hard at work launching a pet friendly initiative in Uptown stores. You should see “pet friendly” stickers appearing on windows soon, and water bowls placed in stores or on doorsteps for our furry friends. If you do choose to bring your pet inside with you, please be sure to use a leash.

  1. Cheers Saint John for going pet friendly. As a family with dogs it has become hard to even get accommodations with dogs and to find places to visit while traveling that let you take your dog along can be hard. Travelling this summer in PEI and NB we noticed more and more places willing to allow pets this is wonderful. Hopefully the dog owners who have ruined some favorite places to stay because of leaving their dogs damage rooms and cottages along with not cleaning up after their pets don’t ruin this for us responsible pet families. Visiting Saint John this weekend with our dogs Marley and Sam Thanks again for opening your doors
