Spring Hills Cherry Hill Assisted Living will host its annual PawFest event on Saturday, Oct. 22 at 2 p.m. Paw Fest is a celebration of the bond between humans and their pets.
All members of the community are invited to participate in festivities including a costumed pet parade through the Spring Hills building, pictures with dogs, refreshments and more. Owners are welcome to dress up in matching costumes with their pets. The event will benefit a local animal shelter. Guests are asked to bring donations of pet food, blankets, treats and more.
At Spring Hills Cherry Hill Assisted Living, pets play a large, important role in their owner’s lives. We love and value our pets who live at Spring Hills,” says Sanjay Kansupada, Spring Hills Cherry Hill Assisted Living executive director. “For elderly pet owners, pets are more than just a companion. They can help reduce stress, lower blood pressure, increase social interaction and physical activity, and help them learn. That’s why we encourage residents to move in with their small pets. We are thrilled to celebrate these pets with the community during PawFest.”
Guests can bring their own pets/ all pets should be on leashes. Refreshments will be available for both people and dogs after the parade.
