Where & When?
5th Annual Doggie Dip will take place:
Sunday, September 9th 2018, 12noon-5pm
Recreation Park Pool – 65 Gashes Creek Asheville, NC

What is a Doggie Dip?
All Buncombe County recreational pools are drained at the end of each season before the temperature drops. The pool in East Asheville has come up with the great idea of hosting a “Doggie Dip” before the pool is emptied. Prior to draining, the chlorine levels in the pool are lowered making it safe enough for dogs to enter. So for one day out of the year, you can now bring your pups to swim! Best of all, proceeds will benefit Asheville Humane Society.


Early Registration:
$5 per dog with handler

Day of the event:
$10 per dog with handler

$1 for additional human spectators (note only dogs will be allowed to swim)
