The Greater Palm Springs crowd takes its love of dogs seriously. Beyond the pet-friendly resorts and restaurants throughout the destination, pups enter photo contests and rule the runway at Fashion Week El Paseo, Animal Samaritans has their back, they ride the BUZZ, and enjoy doggy pampering, playtime, and parties at Venus de Fido.

Palm Springs BUZZ

Did you know that dogs can ride on the Palm Springs BUZZ? This free dog-friendly trolley runs Thursdays through Saturdays with designated stops in Palm Springs. Bring a blanket or towel for your service dog to lie down on. If your pet is not a service animal, he or she must be in a properly secured cage or pet carrier.
