City and Rec Center Team up for "Pooch Plunge"
Posted on 11/02/2011

Attention Cottonwood Heights dog owners! You are invited to participate in a one-time-only chance to let your dogs swim in the Cottonwood Heights Rec Center’s outdoor pool! That’s right, the city and the rec center are teaming up for the first-ever “Pooch Plunge” on Nov. 5 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.

The rec center is getting ready to drain the outdoor pool in preparation for improvements that will be made to the structure, and event organizers saw this as an opportunity to let local pooches get in on the fun of swimming in the pool.

Only licensed dogs will be allowed in the pool, and only 200 dogs will be allowed to participate. Cost for the event is $5 per dog and pet owners can pre-register their dogs by calling or visiting the Cottonwood Heights Recreation Center.

But the dogs aren’t the only ones who will enjoy themselves. Dog owners will be treated to hot chocolate, a “doggie bag” of goodies, and various vendors will display pet-related services and information.

Call the rec center at 801-943-3190 or City Events Coordinator Ann Eatchel at 801-550-8225 for more information as the event approaches.
