As the dog days of summer wind down, the Soggy Doggy Pool Party returns to the Outer Banks Family YMCA! For the fourth year in a row, pups of all sizes get their chance to jump in for an afternoon of splash-filled fun while raising funds for the Coastal Humane Society. Aquatics director Sam Wills says, “It’s the best day of the year. We raised over $600 last year and it’s such a blast.”

Timed perfectly as a grand finale to the outdoor pool season, dogs are welcome to take a refreshing dip for a $10 donation, with all proceeds contributing to the Coastal Humane Society Emergency Assistance Fund. As an all-volunteer charity driven by community donations, the Coastal Humane Society provides vital services to pets in need, including spaying, neutering, low-cost vaccinations and emergency medical care.

Join the fun on September 9, 2023 from 1-4 p.m. at the Outer Banks Family YMCA’s outdoor pool, located at 3000 South Croatan Hwy. in Nags Head. $10 donations will be taken by cash or check, with no reservations required.
