THORNTON, CO…While the dog days of summer are coming
to a close, Saturday, August 18 will be a day just for dogs at Thornton’s City
Pool, 2141 E. 95th Ave. On that day, the pool, already officially closed to
humans, opens its doors to dogs and their owners.
Paws for a Dip, presented by the city of Thornton and Canvas
Credit Union, will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and allows friendly dogs to
get in the water and swim to their hearts content. The fee is $5 per dog and
one adult human companion, with $1 for each additional human. (Children ages 12
and under are free.) Proof of current pet vaccinations is required upon
entry. No human swimming or unsupervised children allowed.
