One of our favorite ways to end the summer with a SPLASH is by attending Home for Life’s® Annual Best Pool Party of the Year, and this year’s no different! Except that your dogs are gonna be celebs, because this puppy’s going virtual, which means they need videos of your pups not only swimming in pools, but lounging in the lake, chillin’ in a canoe, paddle boarding—doing whatever it is they do on or in water! If you’re already IN, scroll down for details on how to enter.

Previously held at the beautiful Town and Country Club overlooking the Mississippi River, the Home For Life® pool party went to the doggy paddlers to do their best swimmies. We hope to make it back there in 2021, but 2020’s virtual event is still ALL ABOUT THE DOGGOS.

And it’s for a DOGGONE Good Cause. Home for Life® provides sanctuary for animals deemed unadoptable due to behavioral and/or medical reasons. They have given 200+ furry friends their forever homes with access to everything they need to live healthy and happy lives.

Going Virtual: Share Videos of Your Swimming Doggos

Unfortunately, a giant shindig isn’t in the cards this year, but that won’t deter Home for Life®. Instead, the event is going virtual, and Home for Life® wants to include all their dog and human friends. Snag your leading lady a feature in their virtual event’s video. Here are the details:

Submit a 45-60 second video of your pup’s swimmingly good summer water activities to sanctuary@homeforlife.org. We’re talking dock dives, boat rides, paddle boarding—any video that features Fido enjoying some H2O.

Deadline: September 10, 2020

Trust us: Anypuppy who’s anypuppy is gonna want to star in this video.
