Pet lovers spent an estimated $50 billion on their pets in 2011 according to the American Pet Products Association (APPA). That's an awful lot of doggie bones for Fido and scratching posts for Fluffy. Pets have become more like family members, so it's no wonder that more people are factoring in their pets when contemplating a move.

Below you'll find information on some of the most pet-friendly cities in the United States. These cities have pet-friendly parks and trails, quality veterinary care, active animal welfare groups, as well as an abundance of pet boutiques and retail shops. To make the list, these cities had to be more than pet friendly. They also had to offer an exceptionally high quality of life for the owners who love those pets. From quality health care and higher education to diverse job opportunities, and active artistic and cultural scenes, these cities are some of the best places to work, live and play in America.

Portland, OR, is a pet lovers paradise.

The city boasts an impressive array of dog amenities. Few major cities can claim more than 32 leashless dog parks and hundreds of pet day cares, dog-sitters, veterinarians, trainers, bakeries, photographers, groomers, boutiques, boarders, pet-friendly restaurants and other common pet services.

Impressed? It gets better. Portland's pet-friendly climate has created a happening pet-business scene. There are nutritionists, holistic medicine practitioners, pooper scoopers, funeral homes, lawyers, massage therapists, acupuncturists and not one, not two, but six listed pet psychics, one of whom is kept on retainer at the Hotel Monaco.

The only city with more designated off-leash areas in its metropolitan area is New York (52 to Portland's 50). That's not including de facto dog areas on the riverfront or dog-friendly places like The National Sanctuary of Our Sorrowful Mother, a catholic shrine and 62-acre botanical garden. The Grotto, as its commonly known, holds its Blessing of the Animals on the third Sunday of each June.

Find fun places to roam outdoors in Portland, OR.

Pet lovers spent an estimated $50 billion on their pets in 2011 according to the American Pet Products Association (APPA).

Below you'll find information on some of the most pet-friendly cities in the United States. These cities have pet-friendly parks and trails, quality veterinary care, active animal welfare groups, as well as an abundance of pet boutiques and retail shops. To make the list, these cities had to be more than pet friendly. They also had to offer an exceptionally high quality of life for the owners who love those pets. From quality health care and higher education to diverse job opportunities, and active artistic and cultural scenes, these cities are some of the best places to work, live and play in America.
