Admission is free for dogs, but their masters will have to purchase a general admission ticket. Prices are $2 for kids, $3.75 for adults.
The event serves as an outreach for the Humane Society of Central Washington as well. Society staff will be there to accept donations of money or supplies, including pet food, blankets, toys, leashes and cash donations.
When first arriving for “Paws In the Pool”, dogs need to be kept on leashes, however, once inside the fenced-in area around the pool, dogs are free to do as they please and enjoy a day of swimming fun!
All four-legged fur babies must be current on vaccinations and owners must clean up their pet’s messes. Vicious dog breeds will not be allowed.
In previous years, up to 170 dogs and their families have participated.
