Sam Wills is the Senior Program Director at 
the Outer Banks Family YMCA, and is the 
organizer of the Soggy Doggy Pool Party.
          The following questions were answered by
           Sam Willis.
Are you the organizer for all 3 years?

- Yes, I’ve been the organizer the last three years (2019, 2021, 2022–no 2020 swim) and there was a gap where we did not have a dog swim in the years before that. There have been previous swims. 

Who were the non-profits that benefited in prior years?

- The 2019 and 2021 non-profit was Outer Banks SPCA. Last year we also did a car and dog wash at the event by donation to our swim team. Still getting pieces together on that for this year. 

Do you have a count of attendees for the prior years?

- We had about 50 dogs last year

Is the pool olympic size?

- No, our outdoor pool is not Olympic sized, but it does have a zero depth walk in area so it’s shallow and great for the little dogs


Will there be a lifeguard on duty?

- Yes, there will be lifeguards on duty

Will a Veterinarian be present?

- No veterinarian on site. I have taken the red cross course in pet first aid.

Are any dog pool toys provided? or bring your own tennis balls? Please provide a list of things provided at the event, like water bowls, etc.

- We have some tennis balls and frisbees, but they can bring their own toys, if they like. There’s a great area the dock diving dogs like to go running off into the pool

- We have water dishes out and treats are dispensed liberally! :)


             Do you have a Rain Date?

            - Sunday, September 11th, 2022
