Party with your dog and socialize with other dog owners at the “Pool Paws Dog Swim” on Saturday, September 9, at Alligator’s Creek Aquatic Center, 403 Civic Park Drive (in Civic Park), O’Fallon, Missouri 63366. The event, which will be held from 9:30 –11:30 a.m., features raffles, games and prizes, and every dog gets a chance to win an attendance prize. Dogs will have a great time playing with the water spouts on the beach and paddling in the pool. Humans will not be swimming with their pets but they are welcome to wade up to their knees in the leisure pool.

The cost is $10 per dog, which includes one human and $3 for each additional person. Funds benefit the Missouri Alliance for Animal Legislation. Dogs must be accompanied by an adult (age 18 or older) and have written proof of rabies vaccination.
