Shoppers in Port Arthur may soon be taking a new route on their nightly dog walk. From 5-8 p.m. each Wednesday in August, beginning August 10, Central Mall, managed by JLL, is encouraging its shoppers to bring their pooches in for themed events. The newly launched Dog Days program will feature fur-friendly experiences on four themed nights:

August 17: Forever Homes – This pet adoption night is designed for humans looking to open their home to a dog in need. Stop by and help dogs from Pups in Peril find their forever families.

August 24: Canine Heroes – Help us honor our local service animals and their trainers. There will be a special presentation held to honor local service animals and their trainers.

August 31: Fashion Hounds – Let’s play dress up. Join Central Mall for a pet fashion show and costume contest.

“Up to 47 percent of households in the U.S. have a dog and more than 14 states now have malls that are dog-friendly environments. We encourage shoppers to come celebrate their four-legged family members with a night out on the town,” said Jodie Galloway, Senior Manager Marketing/Specialty Leasing at Central Mall.
