Providing Independent Living, Assisted Living and Memory Care, Senior Lifestyle’s Mangrove Bay community in Jupiter, Florida is known for beautiful views of the Intracoastal Waterway and proximity to gorgeous beaches. Residents enjoy beautiful weather, exceptional services, and locally sourced ingredients for gourmet meals, and while none of those things are changing, Director of Sales and Marketing Lonnie Hoffman claims that one day very soon, Mangrove Bay will, in fact, be “going to the dogs.” Surprisingly, Executive Director Kathy Wise reports that residents, families and team members are looking forward to this “dog day”, and will even invite the public to witness the event!
What is happening at Mangrove Bay? The social event of the season, of course! The community will host a “Pup-tastic Fashion Show” in conjunction with the ribbon cutting for their new dog park on Thursday, October 19th from 2-4 pm and the local community is invited to attend. The new pet play area will be officially opened, light refreshments will be served, and the “pupperazzi” will be out in force, taking pictures of pets and their people. The community will host a “Yappy Hour” from 4:30-5:30 pm following the fashion show that is sure to be a howling success as well! Furry Friends Adoption and Clinic, a local no-kill shelter, will be on hand to help judge the fashion show along with adoptable pets from the shelter. In addition, officer Chad Norman, a bloodhound handler with Jupiter Police Department’s K9 unit will perform a skill demonstration. To RSVP to the grand opening of Mangrove Bay’s dog park or to enter a pet in the fashion show, please call 561-575-3123.
Mangrove Bay is home to more than ten dogs, beloved companions of residents of Mangrove Bay who add to the quality of life experienced in the community. The pets and their people at –Mangrove Bay have a heart for helping others and will be collecting items from Furry Friends’ wish list to help animals at the shelter live happier lives.

- Pedigree adult, puppy, small bites dry food
- Pedigree adult and puppy wet food
- Bleach and non-scented laundry detergent
