Port Royal, SC (September 16, 2014) – This year’s first PUPPY PLUNGE event, all canines are invited to take a dip in the YMCA outdoor pool.
Puppy Plunge is scheduled for Saturday, October 4th from 10AM-12PM at the Wardle Family YMCA of Beaufort County (1801 Richmond Ave., Port Royal, SC 29935) and will continue on the first Saturday of each consecutive month.
The cost is only $5 per canine and all proceeds benefit the “Learn to Swim” program at the Y. “We want dogs to bring their parents for a splashing good time,” said Mike Bostwick, CEO of Wardle Family YMCA. Proceeds from all our Puppy Plunge events benefit our ‘Learn to Swim’ program and with water literally everywhere here in the Beaufort area, it’s vital that our kids learn to swim. Plus, during Puppy Plunge our furry friends have a safe place to play – it’s a fun time for everyone.”
Well behaved and friendly canines of all breeds and sizes are welcome to attend the Puppy Plunge on the first Saturday of each month. As long as the weather cooperates, this event will continue until the outdoor pool opens again for humans use in the spring.
Dogs must be well behaved, current on all required vaccines and leashed until inside the pool area. Owners must be present at all times and humans are not permitted to swim in the Puppy Plunge.
