Dogs, Dogs and more Dogs!

Lancerlot Sports Complex proudly announces the return of “The Oakey’s Dog Days of Summer” event. A fun-filled event for your four-legged friend to “cool off” this extremely hot summer!


Lancerlot Sports Complex (aka “The Lot”) welcomes back for our FIFTH year “The Oakey’s (Pet Funeral Home & Crematory) Dog Days of Summer” event which will take place on Saturday, August 24th from 1:00pm – 4:00pm. This will be a free community event open to the public, especially all those with dogs, or those who are thinking about adopting a dog.

As in years past, we will host a dog adopt-a-thon in conjunction with local adoption agencies. In addition to the adopt-a-thon, we will openly provide to the general public the coolest activities for pooches. We will turn their full regulation sized ice rink into a cool dog park and open their outdoor swimming pool for dogs and their owners only. Over 20 dog related vendors will be on-site providing free services, offering door prizes and more!  What better way to let your best friend beat the extreme heat during these dog days of summer by chilling out at coolest place around!  

“It’s been outstanding hosting and watching this wonderful event grow over the years. It’s really such a fun and cool event for the dogs and their owners to attend,” said Lancerlot Sports Complex General Manager, Joe Miller. “We hope that many dogs find a loving family and a new home during the adopt-a-thon. Our goal for this event is to offer something different and unique for all dogs and owners alike across Virginia’s Blue Ridge.”

We would like to thank their title sponsor, Oakey’s Pet Funeral & Crematory, and their co-sponsors, Town of Vinton, Pretty Paws Dog & Cat Grooming and Noah’s Ark Animal Complex for their support of the event.
