Fundraiser for animals in Missouri: Pool Paws for Humane Laws

St. Louis, MO -The Missouri Alliance for Animal Legislation’s annual Pool Paws for Humane Laws (dog swim fundraisers) will wrap up another hot summer season with dog swim events in St. Charles, Kirkwood and O’Fallon.

These dog swim events offer well-socialized dogs the opportunity to take an end-of-season dip in the pool while providing for some fun entertainment. Family and friends are allowed to wade in the pool with their dogs. Admission is $10 per dog plus one human companion*, and $3 per additional family member or friend. Half of the entry fees will go to the Alliance to support their efforts in advancing humane laws for animals in Missouri. *$13 at Alligator’s Creek Aquatic Center in O’Fallon
