West Carrollton’s tenth-annual Doggie Dive will be held from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., at Wilson Pool, 1226 S. Elm St. The pool’s last day for people is Sept. 4.
Admission to the event is $5 per family and a portion of the proceeds will benefit local dog organizations such as Luv4K9s and the Ohio Pug Rescue. The city has donated more $14,500 from the event to local groups since the event’s inception in 2008.
In addition to swimming, there will be dog contests and activities such as a look-alike and costume contests, and a pet trick contest. Several dog rescue organizations will showcase dogs that are available for adoption during the Adoptable Mutt-Strut
There will also be concessions available, as well as several pet and non-pet related vendors on display. The deadline to register as a vendor is Friday, Aug. 25.
Twin Maples Veterinary Hospital and Farmers & Merchants Bank are the co-sponsors for this year’s event. A radio DJ from SoftRock 92.9 will broadcast from the event.
Owners should bring their dogs on non-retractable leashes and leave dogs-in-heat at home.
