Heritage Humane Society’s Drool in the Pool Allows Dogs to Beat the Heat

Heritage Humane Society's annual Drool in the Pool event at Chickahominy Riverfront Park is offering dogs from around the Historic Triangle a chance to beat the summer heat. On Saturday, September 10 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., the Chickahominy Riverfront Park pool (1350 John Tyler Memorial Highway) will become a swimming hole for dogs thanks to our partners at James City County.

For a small price tag of $10 per dog, participating dogs will have the opportunity to take a dip in the pool while their owners enjoy music from WMBG AM 740, partake of refreshments, and stop by the displays of our vendors including Professional Pet Sitting, Wagging Tails Dog Walking, Perfect Paws Pet Training, and James City County Parks & Recreation.

Anyone who wants to watch the dogs swim may do so for free, however, no one, owners included, is permitted to swim with the dogs.

To check the status of the event in case of inclement weather, please call the James City County event line at 757-259-3232. All proceeds from the event benefit the animals at Heritage Humane Society.
