Open Swim for Dogs!

Lava Heat Aquatics and the Lava Hot Springs Foundation invite dogs and dog-lovers to Lava Hot Springs!  Our goal is to maximize the joy that (somehow) accompanies wet dog smell and a totally exhausted pooch at the end of the day! Proceeds help fund the Lava Heat Aquatics’ learn-to-swim programs, and the event donates money to local canine charities.
