Our Pooch Plunge made some HUGE waves on August 29! We saw more than 200 dogs, and likely more than 400 people, come through the City Pool. We also made more than $1,300! If you attended, please share your images or videos with on our Facebook page, and be sure to tag yourself in the pictures our wonderful photographer and board member Mary took.
Shout out to nearly 20 volunteers who helped us at registration, guarding the dogs and people, and the silent auction table. You guys are our rock: Brandon, Rachel, Mary, Tara, Cody, Rebecca, Felicia, Peggy, Leah, Phyllis, LeAna, Lanie, Randy, Heidi, Robynn, Jessica, Manda, and Diane.
