Saturday, Aug. 22 at 6 p.m. — RUTLAND — Let your favorite pooch enjoy the end of summer with a dip in the pool at the Dog Days of Summer pool party. The cool-pool event takes place on Saturday, Aug. 22, from 6-8 p.m. at Northwood Pool on Post Road, Rutland Town. There will be a free swim for dogs throughout the event (dogs only), along with games and fun activities for owners and their dogs. All proceeds go towards the care of homeless animals in the community.
Dogs must be leashed, except when in the pool, and Vermont law requires that all dogs are up to date on their rabies shots. Puppies under four months old and dogs in heat will not be allowed to participate. Aggressive dogs will be asked to leave. A $5 donation per dog is requested to benefit Rutland County Humane Society.
