Santa Paws Holiday Pooch Plunge

Event Date: 4 Dec 2021

Thank you everyone who supported and attended our annual Santa Paws Holiday Pooch Plunge, presented by Apex Pavers & Pools on Saturday, December 4, 2021. Held annually at Sailfish Splash Waterpark, this December's event brought in more than 250 dogs to make a SPLASH, while raising nearly $7,000 to benefit the shelter pets! In addition to this RECORD-BREAKING success, our nonprofit partner, House of Hope, collected an abundance of canned pet foot to share with their four-legged clients.

Event Details:

For just $10 per pup, dogs of all sizes are invited to participate in an open-swim session at the waterpark before the facility closes for winter. The open swim starts at 10 am and will conclude at 1 pm. Registration is available in advance on our website or at the event.

In addition to the open-swim session for dogs, attendees can partake in Selfies with Santa and a 50/50 raffle, while enjoying cheerful holiday music and grabbing lunch at one of the participating food trucks!

All event attendees are encouraged to bring canned cat or dog food for the four-legged clients of House of Hope, just in time for the pawlidays.
