About Bay Families with Dogs
Bay Families with Dogs is a non-profit advocacy group formed to improve the community environment for people who enjoy outdoor recreation with their dogs. Goals include better education and awareness for both dog owners and the non-dog owning community, and to obtain and maintain recreation zones on area beaches for Bay County families to enjoy responsibly with their dogs.

We advocate a considerate approach that respects the concerns of non-dog owners while providing us with our rightful access to public spaces. We are committed to enriching the quality of community life through responsible pet ownership, and fostering goodwill between pet owners and others.

BayFWD members include:
  • People with an interest in recreational areas and beaches for their entire family - which includes their loyal, fun-loving dogs
  • People interested in improving the area's attractiveness to tourists with pets
  • People interested in providing an optimal recreational boating experience in the area
  • People who want more reasonable government policies about what we are allowed to do on area beaches
  • The dog owning community in general
  • People concerned with the humane treatment of dogs
  • People interested in promoting community based activities
  • Other organizations working for similar goals
Bay Families with Dogs was founded in May, 2006 as a Florida non-profit organization with Official Registration number CH21340 from the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Affairs.
