Canines will have free rein to paddle along the river adventure, play in the fountain pool and fetch tennis balls in the activity pool. Plus, each dog will receive a Morey's Piers souvenir to take home.

A portion of the Doggie Splash proceeds benefit Beacon Animal Rescue, a volunteer-run, no-kill dog and cat rescue servicing Cape May and Atlantic counties.
