The fourth annual Pooch Plunge is a fundraiser for both ICAN and GALS, a show of support and appreciation for the work these two organizations do in our communities. All funds raised will go toward the animal shelters, pet food, vet bills and all the other expenses that are incurred over the course of the year as they care for and find new families for dozens of homeless animals.
The Pooch Plunge is exactly what it sounds like. While the pools at Fairmont Hot Springs Resort are closed for their annual cleaning, local pooches can have fun in the natural mineral hot springs.
The cost is $10 per dog. There will be a raffle and organizer of the event, Patrick Tolchard, is requesting a donation of a suitable prize. Anyone wishing to donate or help in other ways may contact Patrick at 250-345-6063.
