On August 26th , 2016 Tel Aviv will celebrate a special day for dogs, for the first time in Israel.
Tel Aviv is the friendliest city in the world for dogs, with 1 dog for every 17 residents, making it the city with the highest amount of dogs per capita in the world. 25,000 Tel Avivian dogs enjoy 70 public dog parks; 1.3 dog parks for every 1 square kilometer. Tel Aviv has also declared special beaches where dogs can roam freely.
The city-wide dog day will be celebrated at the Bnei Dan Dog Park with many attractions for the city's 4-legged residents. Among the attractions are:
  • A display of startups founded in Tel Aviv that serve dogs and their owners
  • Unique products for doggie birthdays
  • Sushi for dogs
  • Dog Spa......And many more doggie-friendly "treats"!

 The Tel Aviv-Yafo Municipality sets dogs' welfare at high-priority:
  • The city's shelter is a no-kill shelter
  • Homeless animals are treated 24/7 by the city's vet services
  • The city animal patrol checks complaints regarding animal abuse
  • The Municipality continues to create activities for dogs, while last month a special screening of the movie "The Secret Life of Pets" was displayed for dogs and their owners.

This is the first time i have ever heard about Tel Aviv. I'm amazed that it is the city with highest number of dogs per capita in the word. That place must be a sanctuary for dogs!

Nice post! Btw, why don't I think about watching the movie "The Secret life of pets" with my furry family?? You inspired me to have a good idea! Thanks for sharing!

That is great. This is the first time I have ever heard about this but it is really meaningful.


I have no idea that Tel Aviv is welcoming to dogs!
