The Shell Factory and Nature Park’s Doggy Heaven Dog Park will be the spot for an inaugural Pet Adoption Day on Sunday, April 22, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
“Our first annual pet adoption day is a natural event for the Shell Factory since the entire property is dog friendly,” said Shell Factory Owner Tom Cronin. “We also hope the event will promote greater usage of Doggie Heaven, a free dog park with a complete agility course and dog jumping pool.”
“Pet adoption day is part of our community outreach program,” said Shell Factory Marketing Director Rick Tupper. “That is to provide the community with free events that support local businesses and in this case local rescue groups.”
Currently a number of pet rescue organizations are scheduled to attend, such as Florida Cocker Spaniel Rescue, the Southwest Florida German Shepherd Rescue, the Florida Boxer Rescue and more.
There also will be a variety of vendors ranging from kennels and pet bakeries to pet suppliers of all types.
