Dogs in Togs cancelled due to wet weather forecast
This weekend’s Dogs in Togs event has been cancelled due to the wet weather forecast.
Western Bay of Plenty District Council’s fifth annual event at Te Puke Memorial Pool was planned to make a splash this Saturday, 10 April from 10am-2pm.
With the pool closed to the public following the summer season, Dogs in Togs allows Western Bay dogs the chance to have one last dip before the pool is drained.
“We would have loved to finish the Wander Dogs Summer Series off in style at this much loved event, but Saturday’s forecast isn’t looking flash with showers,” says Council’s Animal Services Team Leader Dan Barnes.
“While we’re all going to get wet anyway, everyone's safety is our first priority. We’re sorry for any inconvenience this has caused.”
Dogs in Togs is the final stop in Council’s Wander Dogs Summer Series, featuring eight events or walks celebrating all pooches and providing a great way to discover some lovely scenic, safe, dog-friendly spots around the Western Bay.
“Every year the series has grown in popularity and it’s great to see many people and their dogs return every year,” says Dan.
“We’ve had fantastic attendance at all our events and it’s been a fun summer for our canine community and their owners.”
