For the 10th summer in a row, dogs are invited to close out the swimming season at the Wakanda Water Park in Menomonie. About 80 to 100 dogs and their humans are expected to turn out for the event hosted by the Dunn County Humane Society from 10am to 1pm on Saturday, Aug. 31. Humans are limited to one dog each and must sign a liability waiver. Admission is $10 per dog. Besides their people, dogs need to bring along proof that they’re up-to-date on their rabies vaccination. “If the dog is too young for the rabies vaccination, unfortunately they cannot attend,” said Josh Dalton, executive director at the Dunn County Humane Society. They also must be well-socialized and non-aggressive. Other than those few restrictions, Dalton added that dogs will have free rein of the pool and park grounds. Concessions will also be available Dogs can have their humans contact Lisa Drenckhahn at (715) 232-9790 lisad@dunncountyhumanesociety.org with any questions.
