Free-will donation to the Western Hills Humane Society
Dog Days at the water park
Tuesday, September 7, 2021
Well-behaved dogs of all shapes, sizes, and ages, accompanied by their owners, are welcome to Dog Days in the pools from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 7, at the Spearfish Recreation and Aquatics Center.
The pools are open for the pooches to swim, chase tennis balls, and enjoy some time in the water before the pools are drained for the season. Owners are asked to bring leashes, tennis balls, bags to clean up after their dogs, and a donation to benefit the Western Hills Humane Society.
“We look forward to this event every year,” Brett Rauterkus, recreation facility superintendent, said. “You can see the joy in the dogs as they run and jump and swim, and there’s an added element of joy in that we’re raising funds for animals at the humane society in need of their forever homes.”
Pet owners are responsible for their dogs and their behavior during the event; the safety of all attendees (human and canine!) is paramount, so owners should consider whether their dog is comfortable around other animals/people, new locations, new situations, etc., before deciding whether to attend.
For more information, call the rec center at 722-1430.
