Ngaruawahia Pound Pups Pool Party

Location: Ngaruawahia Swimming Pools, Market Street
Pound Pup Pool Parties are back for 2023!
Please read details below as we have made some changes.


$10 per dog – all money goes to helping animals in need.

This year we will be charging $10 per dog. All of the money will be given to Auckland Puppy Rescue & 4 Paws Animal Rescue Waikato, who have supported our Waikato Pound Pups programme over the past 12 months.

Rescue organisations throughout New Zealand are doing it hard – costs are increasing and they are overflowing with animals. For this reason we have raised the cost from $5 to $10 this year.

These events are an opportunity for us to give back to rescue organisations who have supported Waikato Pound Pups by helping us rehome dogs, puppies, and even cats and kittens.

Spot prizes

We have some amazing spot prizes to be given out throughout the day, thanks to our incredible sponsors.
Your chance to win more than $250 worth of goodies for your doggo
We have two incredible raffles (one per event). $5 per ticket - 100 tickets per raffle. Tickets can only be purchased at the event. The winners will be randomly drawn on Monday 3 April and notified by phone.


All dogs are welcome to come from 10am-1pm. The last hour from 1-2pm is reserved for small dogs (under 20kgs) or dogs that are nervous and need a little more time and space.

Cash only. No Eftpos

Our event is cash only. We do not have Eftpos facilities.

Note: All dogs must be fully vaccinated, registered with your local council, in good health, and well socialised with people and other dogs. All dogs must be on a lead when not in water and all owners are responsible for cleaning up after their dogs. We can’t wait to see you!
