Pool paw-ty time is here!

The City of El Paso Parks and Recreation Department will be hosting the 2018 “Dog Day Swimming” event this Saturday, September 8, and Sunday, September 9, at Nations Tobin Aquatic Center, 8831 Railroad Dr. in Northeast El Paso.

The annual pooch swim party gives dogs the opportunity to swim in the city pool before Nations Tobin and all the other city run outdoor pools close down until May, 2019. For two dollars per dog, you and Man's Best Friend can splash around and frolic in the pool from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on both days with other friendly water-loving dogs and their human pals.

So gather up your doggie's shot records between now and then, as you’ll need a physical copy that shows your dog is current on Rabies, Distemper and Parvo to participate. If you show up without shot records, your fur baby will not be allowed in. Collar tags only won't be good enough. Dogs will not be allowed to doggy paddle or fetch that water toy with collar tags only per the event post.
