Looking to take your dog for a dip before summer’s end? Then come out to the Dog Days of Summer Pool Party and fundraiser! Dog owners are invited to the College Hill Pool to let their pooches wade, swim, or jump into the public pool before it is closed and drained for the season. The pool has a shallow, zero-depth entry making it easy for dogs to get into the water. Chemicals in the water will be safe for dogs, but not for humans, so KHS and the City ask that dog owners only get in the water up to their knees. Children are not allowed in the pool while the dogs are swimming. All dogs must be leashed when not in the pool.
WHAT: Join us for a dog pool party and fundraiser for Kansas Humane Society. Suggested $10 donation per dog. Limit two dogs per owner.
WHEN: Monday, August 20, 2018. Small dogs swim from 5:30 pm – 6:00 pm. Large dogs swim from 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm.
WHERE: College Hill Pool, 304 Circle Drive, Wichita, KS 67218

July 4 Pet Safety
To keep July 4th safe for your furry family members, there are a few safety tips to follow.
- Keep your pets indoors. Loud noises and bright lights can be frightening and pets are more likely to be stressed or escape when they are left outside. Keep pets indoors and play soft music or leave the TV on.
- Wear them out ahead of time. Give your pet plenty of exercise during the day so they’ll have less energy and stress at night.
- Make sure your pet is wearing a collar with proper ID. If your pet does manage to get out, an ID tag will help anyone who finds him/her be able to get them back home as soon as possible.
Keep your dog on a leash. Even after the main fireworks are over, if you take your pet outside to play or potty, any last-minute fireworks could startle your animal and cause them to run.
