'Doggie Swim Day' Draws a Crowd'

POPLAR BLUFF, Mo. (9/8/2014) – About 70 dogs brought their owners and families to "Doggie Swim Day" at the Poplar Bluff city pool on Sunday, Sept. 7, for an afternoon filled with sunshine, splashes and laughter.

The event marked the end of the swim season at Hillcrest Park and was co-sponsored by the Poplar Bluff Parks & Recreation Dept. and the Animal Welfare Alliance (AWA). The city pool now will be winterized until next spring.

"The weather was perfect and the Parks and Rec staff was so helpful and professional. What a great day!" said Charlotte W. Craig, AWA president. "We certainly hope to do this again next year, weather permitting."


The Animal Welfare Alliance of Southeast Missouri is NOT affiliated with the organization calling itself the Butler County No-Kill Shelter (also known as The Other Side of the Fence) located northeast of Poplar Bluff, MO.

Take An Abandoned Animal
Into Your Heart and Home

Please remember, adopting a pet is a long-term commitment. You will need to provide food, shelter, yearly vaccinations and one-time neutering or spaying. (Financial assistance for neutering or spaying available for those who qualify.)

Take Westwood Boulevard (Bus. Rte. 67) south to Blackwell-Baldwin Ford. Go west on Butler Street, as if going to the service department of the dealership; keep going to the end of the street. For more information, call the Poplar Bluff Animal Shelter at (573) 686-8635. See the Adoption Page for more information.
