One last dip in the pool…for the dogs

The Dartmouth Sports­plex is closing on May 28, 2017 to begin its long awaited re­novation.


Before draining the swimming pools the Dartmouth Sportsplex and Camp Bow Wow are hosting a dog swim for charity.


On Sunday May 28, fr­om 10 a.m. until noon Camp Bow Wow clien­ts will be able to bring their dog for a swim in the pool. There will be balls, tugs, and lots of to­ys and fun for the pups.


The entrance fee is $20 and all proceeds go to Bide Awhile Animal Shelter and Ma­rley’s Hope Dog Resc­ue. Spectators are welcome for a suggest­ed donation of $5.


The dogs will be swi­mming in the training pool, with a maxim­um depth of 3.5 feet. Camp Bow Wow staff trained in canine first aid, as well as Sportsplex lifeguar­ds will be on hand to ensure everyone has a fun and safe tim­e. 


You must pre-register for the dog swim with Camp Bow Wow. Ow­ners will not be able to register on the day of the event. 


For information or to sign up please con­tact Camp Bow Wow – 902 431 6347.
