Virginia Beach Animal Control Issues Warning About Dogs on Beach

Virginia Beach Animal Control issued a warning on Facebook Sunday reminding people that dogs are not allowed on the beach between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m.

When the weather is hot, the sand can get up to 110 degrees or hotter. Temperatures that high can cause blisters and burns on the pads of dogs’ paws.

The rule extends from 1st Street to 42nd Street, where no dogs are allowed on the beach at all.

The city service issued summons to dog owners who allowed their pets on the beach over the weekend.
