Wrightsville Beach Pet Rules

The Dog Days of Fall and Winter
Dogs throughout the Wilmington, NC area are rejoicing that they can go back to the beach.  For the safety, well-being, and convenience of all beach-goers, Wrightsville Beach has strict laws regarding pets on the town beaches. 
  • No dogs allowed on the beach from April through September
  • Leashed dogs are allowed on the beach from October through March
  • Pet waste must be cleaned up island-wide
The fines for not abiding by these rules is $250.00 on first offense (no first warnings!).  The Wrightsville Beach Board of Alderman moved to this fine structure when they found that town officials were issuing hundreds of warnings and violations kept increasing.

The town of Wrightsville Beach loves our furry friends but needs to ensure the safety and comfort of all residents and visitors.

And now it's October, so.... Welcome Back Doggies!  Enjoy!
