AHS/POPCORN PARK TO PRESENT INFO ON PETS, WILLS AT HEALTH FAIR
BERKELEY TOWNSHIP—It seems only fitting that representatives of Associated Humane Societies/Popcorn Park Zoo would participate in the Holiday Heights Retirement Community’s Free Health Fair on Tuesday, August 7. After all, numerous studies have documented the many health benefits to owning and caring for pets.
The fair runs from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Holiday Heights Clubhouse, 94 Prince Charles Drive, Berkeley Township. More than 50 exhibitors will be present at the free event.
“Research shows that people who own pets have lower blood pressure, healthier hearts and live longer lives. It’s gratifying when we see seniors leave one of our three animal care centers with a new animal companion,” said Roseann Trezza, Executive Director AHS/Popcorn Park. “But, we’re not only here to help folks adopt pets. We want to help them plan for their future, as well. We want to help with the assurances that if something was to happen to a pet owner, that their pet, be it a dog, cat, bird, turtle or otherwise, would be cared for.”
So, representatives will help health fair visitors learn more about finding a companion or making arrangements for the lifetime care of their pets in the event of their incapacitation. They will have written information about placing pets in a Will; adopting a pet and the benefits of pet ownership.
Also at the Associated Humane/Popcorn Park booth will be all types of literature, passes to Popcorn Park, and a video tour of the state-of-the-art Forked River facility; where the staff is committed to making the care of animals as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.
