Let your pooch take a dip in the pool Aug. 29

The end of swim season marks a day of fun for our canine friends.

Residents can bring their dogs for a day of leash-free swim and play in the pool on Aug. 29 at Fossil Park Pool, 6739 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. St. N.

Choose from two swim sessions: 10 a.m. to noon or 1 to 3 p.m. Register at either start time with proof of dog's current vaccination.

Donations of dry Iams or Science Diet dog food, clean towels, Nylabones, bleach, dish soap, blankets, trash bags and newspapers will be accepted on behalf of the SPCA. Admission: $5 per dog, per session (humans admitted free).

For more information, call (727) 893-7732. No humans will be permitted in the pool during this event. Fossil Park Pool will close for the season and maintenance after Dog Swim Day.
