'To Do': Pooches in the Pool

MILTON — Pooches in the Pool is the final 2012 fundraiser at Milton Community Pool. The event held from 3 to 7 p.m. Aug. 19 at Milton Borough’s Brown Avenue Park facility. Swimming is for dogs only, but pooches must be accompanied by a handler 16 or older. Admission is $5 per dog. No fee for handler. Dogs must wear collars, be current on their rabies vaccine and county license, and be non-aggressive. Handlers should bring a leash for their pet. A pooch patrol is on hand to ensure a safe event. Haven 2 Home and Mostly Mutts, both area pet shelters, will be on hand, and many activities planned. Sunbury Animal Hospital will hold pet microchipping clinic for dogs and cats at a reduced rate. Treats and toys for the dogs provided. The pool concession stand open for human visitors. Funds raised help maintain and upgrade the pool. Information, contact Stacey at 437-3183.
