Wellington Green Goes To The Dogs April 5

Three local animal rescue organizations will host “Paws at the Mall” at the Mall at Wellington Green to offer mall guests the chance to play with or adopt a dog, as well as learn from training demos, shop from a variety of dog retailers, enjoy kids’ activities and more.

The family-friendly event takes place on Friday, April 5 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the food court parking lot. During the event, dogs from Animal Rescue Force of South Florida, Barky Pines Animal Rescue & Sanctuary and Palm Beach County Animal Care & Control will be available for adoption.

Dog trainers will also offer demos about how they train dogs, and a variety of local vendors will have products for sale, such as dog treats, chew toys and more. In addition, kids can play games, jump in an inflatable bounce house and get their faces painted. Food trucks will also be onsite.

“Every day, thousands of animals throughout Florida are looking for their forever homes,” said Rachelle Crain, marketing director of the Mall at Wellington Green. “We are proud to give these families a chance to find their perfect furry match and offer the community an engaging and fun activity — all for a good cause.”
