Mansfield, OH, Retirement Communities

The WMFD-TV station contacted me to do a segment on their “Pet Talk” clip. Since Primrose is one of the few retirement communities in the area which allows pets, the tv station wanted to feature us on the show.

It worked out great with our new service project which is geared toward homeless dogs and cats — “Primping for Paws” is our theme.

Residents gathered with scissors and pinking shears in hand to cut out pre-drawn patterns of bandannas which will be donated to area pet shelters. The newly adopted pets will be able to go home wearing one of these bandannas around their neck.

WMFD also brought with them a terrier mix dog from the pound, which was up for adoption.

The wonderful thing about this project was that one of our residents actually adopted this terrier mix and he is now in his new home at Primrose.

We will continue to be involved in helping out the homeless shelter pets by doing another project in early 2014 called “Hearts for Hounds.” This will include the residents making homemade dog biscuits to be given to homeless pet shelters.
