What is the Puppy Plunge?
The Puppy Plunge is a lot of things: dog-friendly, family fun, wet, musical, and all around entertaining! There are two beaches for the actual plunge, one for big dogs (Muscle Beach) and one for small (Petite Beach), with SPCA volunteers on hand to monitor and keep all humans and dogs safe. There is also a dog wash station (by donation, also manned by SPCA volunteers) to get your pups cleaned up after the plunge! Then the pups will be competing in doggie pie eating contests and showing off in a dog bikini parade.
In addition to the actual plunge and doggie fun, there will be a variety of vendors and food trucks in attendance! You can visit with some of your favorite animal hospital teams, dog boarding/walking groups, and more. Then you can grab a bite to eat; we will have everything from Tex-Mex to Kettle Corn! At the same time, you can enjoy some music, provided by a DJ.
