Mack Pool Saturday, August 25 12:00pm-7:00pm

Cost per dog is $4.00 for City of Allentown residents and $6.00 for Non Residents. Proof of Residency is required to receive the Resident Rate.

All dogs must have a valid 2018 license and be up to date on all vaccinations. One handler in the pool per dog is recommended and any aggressive animals will be asked to exit the event. Monetary or dry pet food donations on behalf of the Lehigh County Humane Society will be accepted and appreciated.
