Parks and Recreation to Hold 4th Annual Doggie Dip Day
August 29, 2013 - The City of Knoxville's Parks and Recreation will hold its fourth annual "Doggie Dip Day" from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 8th.

Inskip Pool, located at 4204 Bruhin Road, will once again be wrapping up the summer season with an exclusive dog-only swim party, sponsored by PetSafe. 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 to enjoy 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.

The 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 for $3 per person.

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. Pre-registration is available from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday, Sept. 6th, and from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday, Sept.7th.
