CAPE CORAL, Fla. - December 14th, Dog Days Delight of Cape Coral will be sponsoring JinglePAWS in the Park, a holiday festival and pet adoption event. Proceeds from the event will benefit PAWS Lee County, a non-profit spay and neuter clinic in North Ft. Myers, which services pets from low-income families unable to afford to spay or neuter their pet otherwise.

The event will take place in Jaycee Park 4125 SE 20th Pl, Cape Coral, FL 33904 from 11 a.m. - 3 p.m.

Among the activities planned for the day are: a silent auction featuring items donated by local businesses, a Chinese Raffle, photos with Santa Claus and Santa Paws for people and pets, a canine fashion show, games, stocking decorations, a "Paint your Pet" contest, and Cape Coral Mayor Elect, Marni Sawicki in the Dunk Tank from 12pm - 1pm. Microchipping of pets will also be available.

The goal of the event is two-fold: to raise money for PAWS Lee County so that they can continue providing low cost spay and neuter services to Lee County's under-resourced families, and to raise awareness of the importance of spaying and neutering pets by offering adoptions of rescued animals. Pets are welcome to attend. An information booth will be available so attendees can learn about fostering or adopting a rescue pet.
