One of the things we most admire about the school is Maddie's Shelter Medicine Program, which provides students and vets with the knowledge and skills to meet the special needs of animals in shelter situations; it also offers outreach services directly to shelters. It's funded through Maddie's Fund, a family foundation named after the couple's beloved miniature schnauzer.
If you're looking for a pet friendly place to eat, don't miss The Swamp Restaurant, a Gainesville institution. Their Swamp Starters include Ahi Tuna Tacos and Gator Bites (yes, real gator, served with mango-chili puree). They have an impressive selection of salads, like the Swamp Signature Salad, with grilled chicken or salmon, apples, raisins, and toasted pumpkin seeds. Or you can build your own burger or pick from one of their many tasty sandwiches, like the Argentine, with steak, grilled onions, provolone, and a sunny side up egg on a roll topped with chimichurri. Enjoy it all on their dog friendly covered deck.
We also love The Top, which offers a build-your-own grilled cheese and lots of vegetarian and vegan options. And we like that they have two pet friendly seating areas.
