Bayside is a Proud Contributor to the Communities of Sarasota & Manatee County

Bayside Pet Resort is an enthusiastic supporter of area rescues, animal welfare organizations, and beyond. We work hard to better our community by organizing fundraising efforts, sponsoring shelter pets, offering discounted services for the families of newly adopted pets, and grooming dogs at no cost to help them find a forever home. Every pet deserves a family!

We also implemented our own program; “Bayside Pet Pantry”, a donation program dedicated to small, local animal rescues in our area. We collect anything from beds, blankets, towels, toys, leashes and collars, crates, unopened food & treats, or cash donations throughout the year at all locations.

Bridges of America

We hire many employees through our partnership with Bridges of America, a work-release inmate transition program that allows inmates to gain work experience. This voluntary program applies strict rules, boundaries, and curfews for all women in the program. Many of our employees choose to stay with us when they graduate from the program! When Bridges faced a state funding cut, Bayside Pet Resort spoke out and was among the many local businesses whose support helped show the state what a benefit Bridges programs are to small businesses and the communities that surround them.


Easter Seals of Southwest Florida

We are using animals to help students with disabilities excel in the classroom! Learn more about the important work our “pawtism puppy” Braden will be doing in this blog post.

Easter Seals offers the highest quality of care and services to children, youth, and adults with special needs so that they can enjoy access, opportunities, and increased life choices. We hire many outstanding individuals through Easter Seals’ Life Skills Development program, designed to advance individual independence and expand participants’ life choices at work, home, school, and in the community. Through our relationship, Bayside and Easter Seals are also able to put on fun, social events for the community to enjoy.


We are proud to provide support regularly to the following community organizations

Many of our community partners provide animal adoption services, as always, Bayside Pet Resort encourages you to Adopt Don’t Shop when looking for your furever friends.
