K9Splash! is our signature and most popular event and biggest fundraiser of the year. It’s the weekend that goes to the dogs! Each August, we welcome over 600 dogs and 1500 people to Bever Park Pool in Cedar Rapids to swim, play, and fetch over the course of two days. People always tell us how much fun this event is.

Registration and Forms

Registration is on the day of the event, or you may print and bring the paperwork with you. The paperwork also includes the rules and event waiver you must sign.

We cannot pull off this safe and successful event without the support of our faithful volunteers. We have opportunities available such as registration table, dog holders, gatekeepers, and pool watch, among other duties. Each session is a 3-hour commitment, and when you sign up for 2 spots, you can bring your dog to the event at no charge. We’re looking for over 80 people each day to help with this event. If you have a large group interested in helping, send an email to [email protected]. Thank you!
