The Burbank YMCA down in Reading is holding their first annual puppy swim fundraiser to benefit the annual fund. Bring your four legged friends to the benefit on Sunday, Aug. 25 from 2 to 6 p.m.
Bring your dog or puppy to the Y to swim in the therapy pool before it's drained for yearly cleaning. You do not have to be a member to participate. The benefit will feature free treats for all participants and their owners. Attendants will get to meet Bentley the Burbank Y Boston Strong Terrier mascot.
“The Y is so much more than a place to work out or swim,” Burbank Y Executive Director Irene Collins said in a recent release. “I asked the staff to think of a fun and engaging way to raise money and they enthusiastically proposed the Puppy Swim.”
The cost is $20 per dog for a 30 minute swim. Register in person at the Y (which is at 36 Arthur B. Lord Drive in Reading) or call 781-944-9622. You just need proof of a rabies vaccination and the vaccine must have been completed a minimum of 1 week prior to the benefit.
