Club hosts a swim for the dogs


Submitted by The Summit County Friends of Animals

Today, May 17, canines of all shapes and sizes are invited to splash into summer at the Silver Mountain Sports Club in Park City for the "Dog Daze of Summer" event. The event will benefit the local non-profit animal rescue organization, Summit County Friends of Animals (FOA).

Dogs will be allowed to swim in the Clubs’s two large outdoor pools from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Admittance is $10 per dog or $7 per dog with a donated item for FOA, i.e. cat litter, dog toys, leashes, collars, beds, crates, etc. Non-Club members are welcome. The Silver Mountain Sports Club is located at 2080 Gold Dust Lane in the Prospector neighborhood of Park City.

Participating dogs will have access to the club’s two outdoor pools, a Junior Olympic sized lap pool, and the children’s play pool. Silver Mountain Sports Club ‘s pools will be chemical and chlorine free for the event. Silver Mountain Sports Club will drain and clean the pools after the event, as well as do scheduled maintenance before filling the pools for the busy summer season.

FOA is a non-profit animal rescue and rehabilitation organization which provides care for animals in need throughout the state of Utah and in emergency situations, other parts of the country. In 2007, FOA found permanent, loving homes for over 800 animals. The FOA adoption center, "Furburbia", is located at the Tanger Outlet Center in Park City, Utah. In addition to operating Furburbia, FOA recently broke ground on a new 100-acre animal rescue and rehabilitation facility in Browns Canyon. This amazing, state-of-the-art center will allow FOA to help many more animals in need. Construction is slated for completion at the end of 2008.
