From City of Lubbock:
Calling all dogs! Clapp Pool will again be hosting the K-9 SplashFest on Sunday, August 19, 2012 from 1:00-5:00 p.m. Sponsored by Parks and Recreation, this popular event allows people and their dogs to swim together in Clapp Pool. Dogs can compete in three different contests: Swim Suit Competition, Diving and Retrieving contests. Prizes will be awarded in each event. Door prizes and concessions will be available.
Dogs must be up-to-date on their rabies vaccination and have with them a 2012 rabies tag or certificate from a veterinarian. Dogs must be on leash, and aggressive dogs or dogs in heat are not allowed.
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 their owners. Cost is $10 per dog!
Clapp Pool is located inside K. N. Clapp Park at 46th Street and Avenue U. Admission fees for participants are $2.50 for adults and $2 for youth 17 or younger. Dogs get in free! For more information, contact 775-2673.
