Orange County’s 13th Annual Dog Swim
Your Dogs Will Love This!
Orange County’s Animal Services Department will hold its annual dog swim from 12 to 4 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 10, at the A.D. Clark Pool at Hargraves Community Center, 216 N. Roberson St. in Chapel Hill. Dogs can swim for $5 and people swim for free.
The annual Dog Swim gives dog owners the chance to recreate with their dogs and socialize with other residents. “Along with the fun and excitement of being able to splash in the water with your dog, it is a great opportunity for residents to become familiar with the animal service resources available here in Orange County," said Anne Nicholson, Aquatics Supervisor for the Town of Chapel Hill Parks & Recreation Department.
This is the thirteenth year of the dog swim, which is sponsored by Orange County Animal Services and Chapel Hill’s Parks and Recreation Department. Orange County dogs can swim for $5, dogs from other counties will pay $10. People swim for free.
Please make sure that any dogs you plan on bringing are current on their vaccinations, not in season and on leash when entering the event. We look forward to seeing everyone there so please spread the word and bring friends!The event will draw people from beyond the Triangle area to spend the afternoon recreating with their dogs. It’s a wonderful event and brings people together to celebrate the undeniable bond between dogs and people.
