To kick-off this year’s Puppy Plunge event, all canines are invited to take a dip in the YMCA outdoor pool at no cost! The event is scheduled for Saturday, October 1st from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. and will continue on the first Saturday of each consecutive month. Following the FREE kick-off event, the cost is only $5 per canine and all proceeds benefit the “Learn to Swim” program at the Y!  “As soon as we close the outdoor pool for the summer, we open it up for the dogs!” says Mike Bostwick, CEO of Wardle Family YMCA. Canines of all breeds and sizes are welcome to attend. Humans are not permitted to swim in the Puppy Plunge. For more information, call 843-522-9622.
Beaufort Dog has hurricane plan
Beaufort Dog announced their hurricane policy in early August so that owners traveling could rest assured in leaving beloved family members while on vacation. Owner Kelley Blackston wanted to make sure that not only were no dogs ever left during a storm, but that owners would never have to worry while away.  Beaufort Dog has a comprehensive hurricane evacuation plan that involves notifying owners when a voluntary evacuation has been declared as well as transferring dogs that can not be picked up to a safe location in the upper state of S.C. For more details on Beaufort Dog’s training, day care, grooming, and boarding, please call (843)812-5394 or visit www.BeaufortDog.com.
