Town Of Sunset Beach

Please be aware of the town ordinances concerning dogs. The town of Sunset Beach has jurisdiction on our island and the following rules apply. For a complete listing of town ordinances please see www.sunsetbeachnc.gov

Note: Below is a paraphrase of the town ordinance.

Please leash your dog at all times. Between Memorial Day to Labor Day, dogs are not allowed on the beach from 8am through 6pm. For health and safety issues you must remove any feces and deposit in trash receptacles from all locations on the beach strand and island.

When you bring your dog to Sunset Beach please remember the following:

We have a lot of traffic during the summer. Dogs off leash are at risk of being hit by cars and are in violation of leash laws. Keep your dog on a leash at all times.

Salt Water: If a dog drinks this, it will cause vomiting and diarrhea. Please have water available for your dog when walking or out on the beach.

Beach sand and pavement become very hot during the summer.If you cannot walk on the sand or pavement in your bare feet your dog will be uncomfortable also.

In case of an emergency any of our local veterinary hospitals may assist during normal business hours. At night or after hours emergency service may be limited. Please keep this in mind if your dog is ill or has a chronic disease. Local veterinary hospitals: VCA Seaside Animal Hospital in Calabash, or Ocean Isle Veterinary Hospital in Ocean Isle Beach. For after hours emergency service: Animal Emergency Hospital of the Strand in Myrtle Beach, SC.
