The Heartland Humane Society, along with the City of Yankton Parks and Recreation Department, invites the community to the ninth annual Pooch Plunge at the Memorial Park Pool in Yankton. The dog swim event will be held on the evening of Tuesday, Aug. 20, from 6-8 p.m.  

There is a fee for each dog that is brought in to swim and each dog must be accompanied by a human companion. Dogs and their humans are invited to swim as lifeguards will be on duty. Proceeds from the Pooch Plunge will go toward the care of Heartland Humane Society shelter pets and supplies.

All dogs should have a collar, carry ID tags, be properly licensed, vaccinated and in good health to participate. Make sure all dogs are leashed until ready to take the plunge. Be courteous and be prepared to clean up after your dogs.

For more information, contact the Summit Activities Center at (605) 665-5234, the Heartland Humane Society at (605) 664-4244 or the Homeward Bound Rescue (605) 665-2626.
