Lawrence Pet Resources

Visitors from Lawrence often tell us how much they and their dogs enjoy the time they spend in Beverly's Pet Campus Bark Park. The fully-enclosed, 4-acre park allows them freedom and security rarely found at public parks and facilities.

However, we understand that not everyone can come to the Fishers campus as often as they would like. To help our friends in Lawrence find outdoor alternatives to Beverly's Bark Park that they can enjoy with their pets a little closer to home, we provide information about local parks they can visit when they can't make it to Beverly's Pet Campus, as well as local resources, such as Pet Stores, veterinary care, dog adoption and pet rescue services, and dog-friendly events throughout Indiana.

About Lawrence, Indiana

Lawrence, Indiana is located just a few miles northeast of downtown Lawrence and is one of only four “excluded cities” in Marion County, meaning that the town maintains its own governing bodies.

Thanks to its army past the City of Lawrence is a rich fabric of multicultural threads woven into the finished cloth known as community. Very few communities in America with a population of 40,000 have citizens that can experience such a rich multicultural experience as do citizens of Lawrence. For people who firmly believe in “one world” Lawrence is the perfect place to live, work, play and raise a family.
