OP Aquatics to Host Doggie Swim

The Ocean Pines Aquatics Department will host canine swimmers and their human companions at a Doggie Swim on Saturday, Sept. 6, 2014 from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm at the Mumford’s Landing Pool in Ocean Pines.

This event allows dogs and their owners the chance to splash and swim in the Mumford’s Landing Pool, located at 7351 Yacht Club Drive in Ocean Pines, before it closes for the season.

The cost of the event, which is open to the public, is $6 per dog. All dog handlers must be at least 18 years of age and youth under the age of 17 must be accompanied by a registered adult. Dogs should have current vaccinations, including rabies.

Proceeds from the Doggie Swim, now in its third year, will once again benefit the Worcester County Humane Society. Last year’s swim raised $245 for the organization.

Ocean Pines Aquatics Facility Coordinately Lynn Gabeler, who has worked at the event since its inception, said, “It’s like therapy to see the dogs and people swimming and playing together for a great cause. We already have one group of black labs pre-registered and coming as a family.”

The Ocean Pines Aquatics Department hosts a variety of special events, aquatic fitness classes and swim lessons year-round. Upcoming events to be held at the indoor Sports Core Pool include Friday Family Fun Nights, Dive-In Movie Nights and the 7th Annual Swim with Santa.
