City Parks & Recreation Holds 4th Annual "Doggie Dip" on Sept. 13

Posted: 09/08/2015
Doggie Dip DayKnoxville Parks and Recreation will hold the fourth annual “Doggie Dip” on Sunday, Sept. 13, from 1-6 p.m.
 
Inskip Pool, located at 4204 Bruhin Road, will once again be wrapping up the summer season with an exclusive dog-only swim party, sponsored Powell Animal Hospital. Dog owners are encouraged to bring their furry friends out for a refreshing dip and afternoon of socializing.
 
"We're happy to provide fun events that get people outdoors and enjoying a new kind of fun at the pool. This happens to be an event where the entire family is invited -- especially the dogs," said Joe Walsh, Director of Knoxville Parks and Recreation.
 
Cost is $5 per dog, owner included, with a two-dog maximum for each owner. Family members and guests are encouraged to join the fun as spectators for $3 per person. (Only dogs are allowed in the pool.)
 
The Young Williams Animal Center, local veterinarians, and several area rescue groups will be hosting booths at the dip. A raffle and auction will also be available for all who attend.
 
Lifeguards will be on site during the Doggie Dip.
 
All dogs are required to have up-to-date vaccinations, leashes, and tags for the event. Doggie Dip registration forms must be completed for each dog attending.
