CASPER, Wyo. (RELEASE) - Calling all Good Boys and Girls: as a thanks for being the best, best friends, the City of Casper is throwing a Pooch Pool Party at Washington Park Pool Sunday, Aug. 14 from 1-3pm. “The dog days of summer are upon us, and it’s your pup’s turn for a pool day,” Aquatics Supervisor Edwin Luers said. Washington Park will hold its final public open swim Saturday, Aug. 13, so that the only swimmers for Sunday’s special event will be furry and four-legged. “It’s the perfect end-of-theseason bow-wow out,” Luers said. Other City groups and local partners were licking their chops to get involved, so Metro Animal Control will be onsite with information on spay and neutering, pet licensing, adoption and more. Unleashed Dog Bakery will be selling delicious doggy treats that all pets have clearly earned. Any other vendors interested in participating should contact Marketing & Communications Generalist Rachel Bouzis. In an effort to mitigate cuteness overload and keep the party safe, the event is capped at 30 dogs, and humans must RSVP here. Doggy lifejackets are recommended if this is your pup’s first swim experience. Waste bags will be provided free of charge, sponsored by the City of Casper’s Scoop the Poop initiative. Additionally, free tennis balls will also be available, thanks to a summer’s worth of rogue backhands from the Washington Park tennis courts. Admission is $5 per dog, and all dogs must be accompanied by someone 18 or over. Humans are free but are not allowed in the pool. “All dogs must be on a leash while on the pool deck, and participants must provide proof of current vaccinations and license for all dogs,” reminded Luers. “Aggressive dogs will be asked to leave,” he said. According to preliminary findings, 10 out of 10 dogs are barking ready to go to the Pooch Pool Party, so humans, put your opposable thumbs to good use and RSVP now.
