To help support our organization we co-host and host dozens of events annually. Looking to plan or sponsor an event? Please visit our hosting events page. Below is a current list of events – for more details, please select an event from the list.
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! Afterwards, the pups can compete in doggie pie eating contests and show 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.

It’s a great way to help an adoptable dog find their home team! What better way to spend a Friday evening than helping support animal rescue while enjoying an exciting baseball game!
