Franklin Pool Going To The Dogs On Sunday
Dogs aren’t allowed at Franklin Pool today but they will be on Sunday, August 24th the last day of the summer swimming season. That’s the day when dogs and their owners are invited to the 8th annual Paws in the Pool event set for 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm Sunday afternoon. Admission to the Paws In the Pool event is free for dogs, but owners do have to buy a general admission ticket which costs $2.00 for kids, $3.75 for adults, and $2.25 for senior citizens. A family pass, which can be used for up to two adults and as many as four kids, costs $13.00. “The Paws in the Pool event has become one of the highlights of the year,” says Recreation Supervisor Traci Bennett. “It’s a fun way to close out the summer swimming season. Dogs and their owners get to rule the pool for the afternoon. It doesn’t get much better than that,” The event also provides a great community outreach opportunity for the Humane Society of Central Washington. Society staff will be on hand to provide information to pet owners and to accept donations of money and/or supplies, including pet food, towels, laundry soap, bleach, and kitty litter.
