Athens City Pool
**UPDATE: The event raised almost $800 which will be used for low cost spay neuter in our community!**
The dog swim sponsored by Friendly Paws Pet Supplies & Grooming at the Athens City Pool is always a fun time! Bring your dogs of any size to romp and play and swim. Sun, Fun and Dogs – you can’t have a better day than that!
$5 per dog to enter; larger donations are welcome : ) Donations will be used for a spay/neuter fund – organization TBD shortly.
IMPORTANT: The City of Athens requires that all dogs be up to date with their vaccinations including bordetella which covers kennel cough. This must have been 2 days prior to the event. Please make sure to bring vet paperwork with you or you will not be able to enter the event.
The pool will be closed one week prior to this event and the staff stops adding chemicals at that time. The pool water will then be safe for the dogs to enter. The pools are drained after the Dog Swim event.
Dogs of all sizes are welcome but are not separated. Dogs who may not want to jump in the large pool are usually comfortable playing in the kiddie pool.
Please bring balls that are disposable and don’t need to returned.
Humans are NOT allowed in the water of either pool.
Our classes are held at the store on Monday nights and the next series starts October 3rd.
Puppy Classes — 7:30PM (puppies six months & under)
Adult Classes — 8:30PM (all dogs over six months old).
Registration is required to attend. Classes are limited to five dogs, last four weeks and are 50 minutes each session.
Pre-payment of $65 for a four week class is required. Spots are not held until payment is made online. Unfortunately we are unable to offer refunds once spot is held.
If you have adopted your dog from a shelter or rescue within the past six months you will receive a $20 credit in the shop.

Hello from our friendly staff – make sure to stop by with your pets to say “Hi”!
Have you signed up to get email notifications about recalls for your pet food? Dog Food Advisor and Truth About Pet Food are valuable resources. Visit these websites and sign up. While you are there, check out how your pet food rates. If you don’t buy it at Friendly Paws, you may be surprised by what you find.
We will never sell ANY live animal for profit. All pets who come from chain pet stores are coming from unsavory conditions and dealers. Use your voice, don’t shop in chains who support misery. Looking for a cat or dog? Adopt through http://www.petfinder.com. Looking for fish or a pocket pet? Our local pet shop Fish N’ Stuff is an ethical shop which carries reptiles and fish. We love Athens because Athens loves LOCALLY OWNED!
Beneful – such a pretty bag! Look at all those veggies and meats! And the price, you would think you are feeding your dog a good-for-him diet right? Unfortunately you would be wrong. Most grocery store foods are not made from quality ingredients. Feed your pets better for LESS at Friendly Paws!
Did you know we offer pet sitting and dog walking services? Our sitters can come spend the night, visit one to three times a day and take care of your mail too! No kenneling! Book ahead as we have limited availability. We also offer farm care services, call for information and an estimate.
