Franklin Pool holds "Paws in the Pool" event on Sunday

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash.-- As the summer winds down, public pools around the area are starting to close.

Yakima's Franklin Pool will celebrate its last day with the 6th Annual Paws in the Pool event on Sunday. Pet owners can bring their dogs to the pool, and let them run around and swim for a few hours.

The Humane Society of Central Washington will also be there to collect donations. Volunteers say it's a great use of the pool's last day.

"It's a special sort of event, it's novel. It's not every day that multiple people get to take their dogs to a public swimming pool and go for a swim, so I think it'll be a lot of fun," says Maddie Wooten with the Humane Society.

It's happening at Franklin Pool this Sunday from 2pm to 4pm. Tickets are $3.75 for adults, $2.00 for kids and $2.25 for seniors. You can also buy a family pass for $10.00.
