As we reflect on 2016, it’s easy to say that one of our favorite events was the #SheaPetFest! Back in October, we celebrated pets of all shapes and sizes as they joined their human families across our Shea Homes® and Trilogy® communites to celebrate all things pet-related. The participation across the communities was amazing and the social media photos that everyone shared were a real treat to see! Let’s take a look at what made this event so special.
The purpose of Shea Pet Fest was to get members of the community together for a great cause, and to enjoy a fun-filled experience for both owners and their pets. For every #SheaPetFest photo uploaded on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter, $1 was donated to the Humane Society. With a total of 375 photos taken, we raised $375 to care for animals in need!
Shea Homes® teams across 14 communities hosted a number of pet-friendly activities and entertainment. Many of these communities went all out to celebrate all things pet-related! Sage by Shea Homes® in Livermore, CA organized a fun day out for the whole community with delicious food, a pet adoption event, complimentary grooming and even a “smooch your pooch” kissing booth!
Trilogy® at Vistancia® in Peoria, AZ featured a doggie fashion show, mobile grooming stations, and a number of food and beverage specials for both pets and their owners. Trilogy® at Verde River™ in Rio Verde, AZ hosted a live DJ, agility course, mobile pet spas, animal trainers, a Bark-tender Bar and a Puppy Piñata.
Shea Homes® at Ardiente brought in a waffle truck to celebrate with delicious eats for hungry humans and maple-covered waffle treates for furry family members, too! Trilogy® at Orlando in Groveland, FL took it up a notch by building a temporary dog park with a doggie pool and hosted several vendors, a costume contest, pet parade, obstacle course, adoption event, and a special Mutt Mingle & Yappy Hour! Several other communities joined in on the fun with pet food drives, donation stations, goodies, and various vendors and activities.
