Tails on the Trails Ad Astra Park & Pool

Dog Swimming at Tails on the Trails Ad Astra Park & Pool

(So sorry!!!  This post was supposed to be published on August 6th!  I didn’t realize it remained unpublished until August 25th!  Sorry this is so late.  I am going to back-date publish it so as not to cause any confusion.  The event is over and it was a lot of fun.  But you may want to mark this post because they will do it again next year.)

Come visit the Ad Astra Park & Pool in Lenexa, Kansas on Saturday, August 13th for some great doggy fun!  The Tails on the Trails event will host pet vendors, dog adoptions, pet contests, dock diving dog demonstrations, microchipping, vaccinations, a pet parade, and best of all…. dogs will be allowed to swim in the pool!!!

The swim event for the dogs is $5 per session if paid in advance or $8 on the day of the event.  This money goes to help the Lenexa Parks and Recreation.  How does helping the Lenexa Parks and Recreation help dogs?  Well, Lenexa has a fantastic dog.  The Shawnee Mission dog park is the best dog park I have ever seen in this area.  Upkeep of this great park costs money.  And you can tell when you visit the Shawnee Mission dog park that Lenexa Parks and Recreation does a great job of maintaining it.

You can also donate to the non-profit organizations which will be there.  There will be shelter dogs, dog rescue groups, and other great organizations that help dogs.  If you are looking to adopt a dog, this would be a great place to start.

We will be there again this year with our booth for http://www.petautosafety.com and http://www.animalfigurinestore.com.  Visit us and the other pet vendors for some great pet products and some tail-waggin’ fun!
