Pets are treated as equal member of a family. It’s no surprise that owners want to live in an area that provides the best quality of life for their furry best friend— great veterinary care, off-leash parks, and even restaurants that welcome Fido. The following list is based on The Mortgage Reports’ analysis of the most pet-friendly cities. FIDO Scores™ are highest in cities that are both pet-friendly and affordable. Pet-friendliness is determined using a score from a 2016 WalletHub study which examines 19 metrics in 100 cities -- everything from veterinary care costs to the number of hotels allowing pets.
