Pet-Friendly Onancock

Our historic downtown welcomes furry friends of residents and visitors alike. Look for the Pet-Friendly Decal in the window of many of our shops and businesses that welcome well-behaved, leashed dogs inside. Some provide water or a treat on request. And be sure to meet our "pets at work!" Many of our business owners bring their pups to work.

Onancock welcomes pets on a leash and owners who pick up after them. Please respect our town leash law and if you forget your waste bag, look for the dispensers around town.
