Let your favorite pooch enjoy the end of summer with a dip in the pool! On Sunday, August 26 from 1 – 3 pm at White’s Pool (at the end of Avenue B in Rutland) the Rutland County Humane Society (RCHS) is hosting the Dog Days of Summer Pool Party to raise funds for the homeless animals in Rutland County. There will be free swim throughout the event (for dogs only!) along with games (fastest doggy paddle and a dog jumping contest) and more! All funds raised, including entrance fees, are for RCHS. Each dog entry is $5 and a donation is requested for the people who attend. All dogs must be leashed unless swimming in the pool. Vermont law requires all dogs to be up to date on their rabies shots. Puppies under 4 months old and dogs in heat will not be allowed to enter. Any aggressive dog will be asked to leave. It will be held rain or shine and will be a fun time for the whole family, especially the dog! A special thank you to the Rutland Recreation & Parks Department for donating the use of the pool. If you have any questions or need additional information please contact the RCHS Business Office at 483.9171. Click here for more information. Click here to become a vendor. We hope to see you and your favorite water lovin’ canine on August 26 for a splashing good time!
