One of Swarthmore's current residents is Izzy, a standard poodle puppy who came on board last year at the health and wellness center on campus to earn her therapy-dog certification, much to the delight of students looking for a pet-friendly way to de-stress. Izzy has open office hours every Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday, and students can also schedule one-on-one appointments.

Beyond the college, there is another destination at the campus, The Scott Arboretum of Swarthmore College. You and your pup (on leash) can explore its more than 350 dog-friendly acres of grounds containing over 4,000 plant varieties, including its nationally recognized collections of conifers, witchhazels, crabapples, cherry trees, hollies, hydrangeas, magnolias, and tree peonies. No matter what time of the year you visit, there is always something to see.

Nearby Media PA offers several pet friendly restaurant options. Ariano Restaurant & Bar has craft beers on tap from the U.S. and Italy and a tasty menu that includes options like Sriracha Shrimp and Wood-Fired Baby Back Ribs.
