Grand Strand Beaches Go to the Dogs!

Snowbird Friends,

It is that time of the year when the laws concerning dogs on the beach change so I thought that I would repost them for all of the snowbird pet lovers!


Sect. 5-14. Animals on beaches.

Any animal on the beach must be on a hand-held leash not to exceed six (6) feet in length and under the control of the person having custody of the animal. Persons in control of the animal are responsible for the clean up of any animal refuse. Animals are not allowed on the beach between the hours of 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., from May 15 to Sept. 15. No reptile or similar type animal are allowed on the beach or beach access at any time.


It shall be unlawful for any person having charge, care, ownership or control of any animal to allow any dog to be on the public beaches, whether leashed and under control or running at large from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. during the period from May 15th through September 15th of each year.


Dogs or other domestic pets are not permitted on the public beach during the period between May 15 and September 15.


From May 1 through Labor Day, dogs are allowed on the beach only before 10:00 a.m. and after 5:00 p.m. From the day after Labor Day to April 30 each year, dogs are allowed on the beach at any time of day. At all times when dogs are allowed on the beach, they must be on a leash that's seven feet or shorter, and you must pick up and properly dispose of the droppings.
