Pooch Plunge makes a splash

Posted

The 2018 Pooch Plunge took over the Butterfield Crossing swimming pool on Sept. 8, letting Castle Rock's dogs enjoy a dip in the pool while raising money for local animal shelters.

Each year the park opens its doors for a day of “dogs only” swimming. Residents flock to the pool with their pups, including many families who never miss attending the fundraiser.

“She looks forward to this day every year,” said Amanda Hartberger of her 3-year-old lab, Westen.

The family has attended three years in a row. Like the Hartbergers, Mike Brumbaugh said he brings his lab, Lilly, to the Pooch Plunge annually.

“It's a great event,” he said while Lilly patiently waited for him to toss a tennis ball into the pool.

The annual event is presented by the town's Parks and Recreation Department and collects donations for the Denver Dumb Friends League Buddy Center, located in Castle Rock.
