Staten Island, more like CATen Island!
Hop on the ferry and head out to Staten Island! The borough of Staten Island, the SI as it's affectionately known, has something for everyone and every pet. Also known as the Borough of Parks, Staten Island is home to some fantastic botanical gardens, lush city parks, beautiful hikes, and sprawling green spaces — absolutely perfect for an afternoon outside with your pup! High Rock Park, Latourette Park, and the Staten Island Greenbelt are all worthy adventure destinations. And with over 35-miles of hiking trails, you'll find no shortage of fun ways to get some exercise. Besides its impressive culinary offerings, SI has many other world-class attractions worth checking out. Any day spent wandering the magnificent grounds at Snug Harbor or checking out the Franklin D. Roosevelt Boardwalk and Beach, is a day well spent.
It's clear that if you're an active pet parent, there are plenty of opportunities to get outside and visit one of Staten Island's beautiful green spaces, hikes, or beaches. If you're more the type that prefers cuddling up at home with your cat and watching a movie, that's groovy too! And for those times when you have to work late at the office or leave the pets at home for a trip away, you'll quickly find that Staten Island has some fantastic dog walkers, pet sitters, cat sitters, and other pet care professionals. With Local Pet Care, it's easy to find a pet care pro you can trust!
