West Plains Parks and Recreation will be holding the second annual 'Dog Paddle Party" on Saturday, September 12th at the West Plains Aquatic Park, in People's Park. The event will kick off at noon and will last until 4 p.m. Admission is $3 per dog, and owners will be admitted free of charge. Owners will be allowed in the pool area with their dogs, but can only get into the pool in ankle-deep water.
"All of the proceeds that we make go to the animal control office to help with adoptions. We are hoping to have a pretty good turnout.
To pre-register you can stop by the Parks office at 540 East Olden Street in West Plains. Dog owners will need to provide proof of up-to-date parvo, distemper and rabies shots. Dogs displaying aggression will not be permitted to enter into the event. The local animal control unit will have an officer in attendance for extra precaution and safety.
Bring your dogs out and have a good time. This will be the last day that the Aquatic Park will be open for the summer. For more information please call the Parks office at (417) 256-7304
