Wade on out to "Dog Paddle & More!"

Missed last week's Willoughby's Poochie Paddle?

Willing to drive to Hinckley Township so your dog can take a dip?

Mark your calendar for 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday at Ledge Pool & Recreation Area in Hinckley Reservation - Cleveland Metroparks' "Dog Paddle & More!"

Owners can bring non-aggressive dogs to 1151 Ledge Road for a donation of $3 per dog, to benefit the Medina County SPCA, which will also host a pet adoption area at the event.

A mini Dog Fair for all the pampered pooches, as well as snacks for humans and animals alike, will also grace the grounds, with exhibitors and vendors including Ohio Pug Rescue, Golden Treasures Golden Retriever Rescue, Moochie & Company, Annie's Animal Care, Central Bark Doggy Day Care, Diggitty Dogs, The Animal House, Get Pets Wet, Gold Star Dog Training, American Red Cross, and more.

Cleveland Metroparks' K-9 Unit and B.A.R.K. (Buckeye Area Regional K-9 Unit) will perform animal safety demonstrations at 2 p.m., followed by a dog walk around the area at 3 p.m.

For more information, call 330-239-2911 or 216-635-3200.
