Collingwood Apartment Community is especially proud of our pet-friendly policies and Bark Park which provides an environment for residents with furry family members to enjoy. And since May is National Pet Month, we thought we’d highlight some of the reasons National Pet Month is observed.
They are to:
- Promote the benefits of pet ownership
- Support pet adoption
- Make people aware of the benefits of pets for people and people for pets
- Increase public awareness of services available from professionals who work with animals
- Raise awareness of the role, value and contribution to society of working companion animals
The developers of Collingwood Apartment Community understand the importance of giving residents and other community members places to spend quality playtime with their pets and to socialize with each other, says Melissa Scott, community manager.
Residents of Collingwood Apartment Community and nearby neighbors are welcome to visit our Bark Park with their furry companions. Dog treats also are available in Collingwood Apartment Community resident lounges.
