COLORADO SPRINGS, COLORADO — Dogs got to visit the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo on Tuesday as part of the zoo's "Dog Days" event.

Owners had to purchase a dog ticket along with a human ticket in order to go. Dogs had to remain on a leash, be up to date on vaccinations, and not show any aggressive behavior while at the zoo. People with dogs of all shapes and sizes got to enjoy the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo.

"Oh this is awesome, this a great opportunity for all dogs to just come and just have a different experience," said Britney Mesiack, owner of Lavish Lawns. "So, it's kind of a once in a lifetime opportunity."

The final "Dog Days" event of 2023 will be held on Sat. June 3. To purchase tickets, or to learn more, visit the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo's Website.
