Even though the weather is cooler, the heat inside a car continues to rise quickly. Please do not leave your beloved Pampered Pet inside an unattended car.
Fall is the perfect time to explore all of the pet-friendly places that the Outer Banks has to offer. There are historic sites, State and National Parks, oceanfront adventures, nature trails and so much more. Please see the Outer Banks Pet-Friendly Places page.
Also, take a look at the Outer Banks Leash Laws and Beach Access page. Each township is listed with its individual leash law. The towns also have a letter to correspond with the Map at the end of the page.
Now that Fall is here and Labor Day is behind us, many of the leash laws have changed providing more freedoms and access.
September 22, 2021, the start of Fall on the Outer Banks is the perfect time to plan a Pet-Friendly Adventure. Autumn is Awesome on the Outer Banks!

Gardenia bushes are used widely in landscaping partly due to their extremely heavenly smelling fragrance, when in bloom.
I have actually seen online where there is a debate of which smells better the Jasmine or the Gardenia? I'm not quite sure who won. I would vote Gardenia.
The Latin name for the Gardenia bush is Gardenia Jasminoides.
Even though the Gardenia Bushes are very popular with people they are dangerous to pets.
Gardenia bushes have toxic elements that can cause a number of effects in dogs and cats. If you think that your dog or cat has ingested a Gardenia flower or leaf it is very important to contact your Veterinarian or call the
ASPCA Animal Poison Control at (888) 426-4435.
