Pennswood Village Pets: Bring your furry family members

Posted on June 30, 2017 in General

“Our perfect companions never have fewer than four feet.”

Do you have a perfect companion with four feet? Bring them along with you when you make your move to Pennswood Village! We know that you consider your pets to be family members, and that’s why we welcome them in the Pennswood community. Residents at Pennswood already give happy homes to many of their furry family members, and we invite you to do the same.

We also know that some people may not always enjoy being around animals, which is why we have some guidelines for pets and their guardians to follow. It’s truly up to you to decide how much you’d like to be around pets.

A Pet-Friendly Campus

With some rules and regulations, Pennswood Village is a pet-friendly campus. We offer residents and their pets a large campus to walk while leashed. With 82-acres of land, there’s much to see and explore.

If you’d like to let your dog run off-leash, visit the Pennswood dog park, which was added last summer. The fenced-in dog park is the perfect place for a game of fetch, or to run and play with other dogs.

Cats are another popular pet in the Pennswood community. Residents who have cats enjoy their company in their apartment home, and look forward to being greeted by them at the end of a busy day. Cats make great pets because they are often independent creatures, and are self-sufficient while you spend your days doing what you enjoy most.

“We brought our two cats, Chester and Petunia with us when we moved to Pennswood,” says Lynne Wayman, Pennswood resident. “They like to sit at the window and the sliding glass door and watch the birds and the squirrels. Chester likes to eat spinach, green beans, and asparagus, but Petunia won’t eat any of those things.”

The Benefits of Pets

Owning a dog or cat can also have many health benefits. It’s been proven that the joy of pets can lower blood pressure, cholesterol levels, and reduce feelings of loneliness. They’re also a great way to increase your opportunities to spend time outdoors, get more exercise, and meet other people who also have pets.

Pets can lead to social situations you might not otherwise have. Has anyone approached you while walking your dog to ask if they can pet him or her? Did that interaction lead to a longer conversation? Perhaps you have a friend that you like to walk your dog with regularly, or you run into other dog owners at the dog park.

Pets bring joy to our lives, no matter our age. Enjoy your retirement with the company of your pet at Pennswood Village.

“Pets are an important part of health and happiness. They’re just a delight, so interesting and lovable, and want to be part of your life,” adds Lynne.
