SafeWise has released a ranking of the “Most Pet-Friendly States in America.” The list relies on data from the Bureau of Labor and the Animal Legal Defense Fund, along with other sources such as BringFido.com. It’s based on which states have “the strictest anti-cruelty laws, highest percentage of no-kill shelters, most pet-friendly hotels and parks, and more,” according to SafeWise, a review site for security systems. Claiming the No. 1 spot on the list is Maine. Among its advantages are “no breed restrictions and 76 dog-friendly beaches, hiking trails, and dog parks — and nearly 1,000 pet-friendly hotels,” according to SafeWise.
