FIFTH ANNUAL BARK N’ SPLASH BASH RETURNS SEPTEMBER 9TH
The Williamson County Parks and Recreation Department (WCPR) will once again partner with the Williamson County Animal Center (WCAC) to host the Fifth Annual Bark ‘n Splash Bash on Saturday, September 9, 2023 at the Longview Recreation Center at Spring Hill, 2909 Commonwealth Dr., from 9:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Due to popular demand, this “paw-some” event returns for all dogs to have a chance to paddle and play while raising money for the animal center.
Evan Hampton, Aquatics Superintendent for WCPR said his staff are excited to host the event. “We know people love their dogs, and the Bark ‘n Splash Bash gives them a chance to enjoy playing with their dogs in a fun aquatic environment.” During the special event, the pool area will be open only to pre-registered adult handlers (18+) and their dogs. Spectators are welcome to observe from the “Bowwow Boosters” section (free of charge).
For more information and to register visit www.wcparksandrec.com. Space is limited, and participants must pre-register using activity code 29498. The entry fee is $20 per pet. Proof of rabies vaccination is required for entry (no exceptions). Participants should review all rules and waivers during online registration.
Bonded seniors, Finnegan and Nash are looking for a family that will welcome both of them into their home and is willing to provide some special care. Anyone interested in these two should call or visit the center to get more information about the type of household that they would do best in. Stop by WCAC to learn more about Finnegan and Nash or spend time with any of the other adorable adoptables looking for a home!
“This is one of our favorite events every year,” said WCAC Assistant Director, Scott Pieper. “I can’t think of a more fun way to engage the community, and we are so grateful that Parks and Rec gives us – and the dogs – this opportunity.”
