Region 8 seniors make homemade pet treats

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) – Senior citizens across Region 8 celebrated with their furry friends Friday.

South Wind Heights, an independent senior living community in Jonesboro, is hosting pet-friendly events, activities, and seminars all weekend.

Friday's event allowed participants to make their own pet treats.

For employees, it's a great way to bring the senior community together. "We're always finding new ways to celebrate things with our residents and make them feel special and this week we just decided to make them feel special and bring their pets along, to celebrate having pets and being able to have them here at South Wind Heights."

The events continue all weekend long. Saturday senior citizens will receive pet care tips.
