Time to Take Your Four-Legged Friend for a Swim in Lubbock
The end of the summer season brings an incredible event for dogs and their owners.
It's time again for K-9 Splashfest. This year, it will be held at the Montelongo pool on Sunday, August 13 from 1 to 5 p.m. This event allows dogs and their owners to go for a dip for the last day of city pool operations.
But here's the cool thing: there will be contests, including a swimsuit competition and retrieving competition.
From the City of Lubbock:
Dogs must be up-to-date on their rabies vaccination and have with them a 2017 rabies tag or certificate from a veterinarian. Dogs must be on a leash, and aggressive dogs or dogs in heat are not allowed. Door prizes and concessions will be available. City of Lubbock Animal Services will host a booth at this event and will be providing microchips for dogs! Microchips are the best way to ensure that a lost pet is reunited with its owner. The cost for the microchip is $10 per dog.
Admission is $2.50 for adults, $2 for kids under 17 and dogs are free! Montelongo Pool is at Rogers Park, 3200 Bates Street.
