Thank you for your interest in being a Certified City in the BETTER CITIES FOR PETS™ program from Mars Petcare.

Whether you are applying for the first time or applying for re-certification, this assessment is a key step to understanding your city's pet-friendliness.

After some initial demographics to help us get to know your city, the assessment evaluates your community based on the key traits in the BETTER CITIES FOR PETS model. This model highlights key focus areas across four pillars: shelters, homes, parks and businesses. You can find out more about the model and the program here.

If you have questions about the assessment, please contact us at

Please keep in mind that by completing this assessment, you're giving us permission to use the info you provide for any research and marketing purposes. For example, we might compile survey data for a report about what cities are doing to be pet-friendly.

We look forward to reading your responses and learning more about your pet-friendly city!
