OTTUMWA — Dogs in southeast Iowa are enduring unusually hot temperatures, just like their owners. And, like their owners, they'll soon be able to take a dip to cool off.
The Beach Ottumwa is planning to host its annual pet night from 6-8 p.m. Labor Day. Admission for the event is a bag of dog food, which will be given to Heartland Humane Society.
It's not entirely a free night out for the animals, though. Pets must be leashed if they attend.
