Pups at the Point & Read with the Dogs

Due to popular demand, you now can enjoy Pups every day.
You and your fellow dog lovers can explore the 30-acre outdoor museum with your best four-legged furry friends. Stroll shaded nature trails and take in beautiful views of Little Sarasota Bay. (See rules of responsible pet companionship below.)  Become a Member and enjoy free admission to Pups for a full year.

Also bring the family to Read with the Dogs at the Osprey Public Library at Historic Spanish Point on the third Saturday morning each month. Suncoast Humane Society pet-therapy teams will be here 10-11 a.m. so your children can read aloud with the specially trained and delightfully calm dogs. This free program is open to the public.
