2020 Event Update: Home for Life's® Best Pool Party of the Year

Swimming in the Apple River

An unusual summer approaches. With this hot weather, cooling off with a swim is a priority. It's the first time we started our excursions to the Apple River in Mid-June. There are still many unknowns and especially concerning Covid-19 as restrictions are beginning to be lifted.

Because of the moving target that seems to be the world around us right now, Home for Life® is going to postpone the sale date for our reservations for the 5th Annual Best Pool Party of the Year, Sunday, September 20th. Tickets will now go on sale AUGUST 15TH, 2020. We may need to extend that ticket on-sale date to September 1.

We're doing everything possible not to cancel the event, but many variables are out of our hands. We want to have a relaxed and carefree event—it's hard to imagine requiring guests to have to swim with masks on! We think the best way to present this event that so many look forward to and not disappoint is to make sure that people will be comfortable attending and feel safe. With so many circumstances in flux, it will just take time to determine whether putting on the event everyone expects will be possible.

Thank you for your patience and please stay tuned for further announcements; we truly hope we will be able to welcome you to the pool party this year to celebrate the end of summer and how good it is to be alive and healthy! We hope to be together and see you all soon with your beloved dogs. More information about the event here.

Our gala will be postponed until at least Spring 2021.  Our Tour season has been postponed—we will be announcing when we can offer tours of the sanctuary as news about COVID 19 develops but we regret that tours of Home for Life® must be postponed at this time until further notice.
