Pooch-A-Poolooza set to make a splash

  • Aug. 20, 2019 6:30 a.m.

The Courtenay and District Memorial Outdoor Pool at Lewis Park is going to the dogs.

Join us on our last day, Saturday, Aug. 31, for fun in the pool for your favorite pooch.

The event runs from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Admission is by donation and all proceeds will be donated to Vancouver Island Compassion Dogs. Dog vaccination papers must be presented for admission, so be sure to get those ready ahead of time.

Have a young pup or a smaller pooch? Both the wading pool and the big pool will be open to accommodate dogs of all sizes.

The friendly staff from Van Isle Veterinary Clinic will be on site to help ensure the safety of all furry swimmers and Woofy’s Pet Foods will have giveaways.

This is a fun, family-oriented event so dogs must be friendly to attend. Please note, no humans will be allowed in the pool.

Come on down and make a splash in this pawsitively perfect farewell to summer pawrty!
