Pets on Third – The Lifestyle

Third Street South is very pet-friendly and has a European attitude towards pets accompanying their humans. Water bowls and treats are found many places and the occasional necessities can be found in special holders on the Area directories at the corner of Third and Thirteenth. Bring your non-human friends.
