Volunteers in Action with PJ Library: Puppy Parade at Sholom West Campus

November 12, 2023 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

VIA - Puppy parade

Sunday, November 12
3:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.
We will meet at Knollwood Place Apartments – 3630 Phillips Pkwy, St Louis Park, MN 55426

Join Volunteers in Action and our PJ Library families in bringing joy and pet therapy to older adults at the Ackerberg Family Sholom West Campus in St. Louis Park. Grab your dog and meet us there, where we will “parade” our way around Knollwood Place Apartments, Roitenberg Assisted Living & Memory Care, and then Sholom Home West, visiting with residents in each of the three buildings.

To ensure the safety and enjoyment of all involved, we ask that your dog is well-behaved around other dogs, in unfamiliar places, with new people, and won’t be jumping up on residents.

Don’t forget a copy of your dog’s vaccination records, baggies in case of accidents, and maybe a handful of treats!

Registration is now closed.
