What you need to know before you book!

  1. Will your pet get along with other dogs and people? Before you sign up for this tour we ask that dog owners to consider whether or not their dog is socially attuned to such a tour.
  2. Per city ordinance all dogs must have their DHLPP and rabies vaccinations and must sign a waiver attesting that the shots have been administered.
  3. Dogs must be on a leash.
  4. Owners must clean up after their pet. Please bring along dog waste bags for the tour.
  5. What if it rains? Unfortunately, all of our venues are outdoors. We suggest that you make your reservation once you have arrived in St Augustine, so that you can check the forecast. If it does rain, we will try to reschedule your tour for the following day or we will refund your purchase if we have to cancel the tour. Sorry, but we cannot refund your purchase if you just decide not to go. By booking the tour your spot is guaranteed on the tour. This will close a spot that someone else could take.
  6. St. Augustine Historic Walking Tours has the right to refuse attendance if a dog shows aggression at the start of the tour. Remember that your tickets are not refundable but can be used for a non-pet friendly tour if you so desire.

All of our Pet Friendly tours support Ayla’s Acres!

Ayla’s Acres No-Kill Animal Rescue, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) that was founded in May 2012.  The sanctuary is home to horses, dogs, cats, goats, pigs, birds, etc.  The sanctuary is a place where these animals can live out their lives with good care and dignity.

In St. John’s County, we do all of our rescue, foster and adoption work.  We find forever homes for dogs and cats.  We focus on finding quality homes for our animals.  Our adoption process includes filling out an application, vet checks and house checks.  Ayla’s Acres tries to find the “best fit” for the animal and the family.  This helps to ensure that our furry friends truly end up in “forever” homes.

Ayla’s Acres receives no government funding. We raise all of the money needed to support of efforts for the animals. It costs between $6,000 and $10,000 a month to run the sanctuary.  As an example, we use 800 pounds of dry dog food a week.

In July 2013, Ayla’s Acres opened a thrift shop called Ayla’s Acres No-Kill Animal Rescue Thrift Shop located at 142 King Street to help offset some of these costs.  All of the items at the shop are donated.  All of the people helping us at the thrift shop are volunteers.

Just want to help them out? They take donations on their website.
