For Dog Lovers During Your Stay

Dogs are not allowed on the anywhere on Tybee Island.  Violators are subject to a $290 fine on the first offense!  Cars get deadly hot in the summer time after only a few minutes and animals found in closed vehicles will be rescued even if it means breaking a window on the car.  Not being allowed to take your dog to the beach is no excuse for animal cruelty.  Make sure you make arrangements for proper care for your pet before heading to the beach.
