Drool in the Pool 10 Year logo Volunteer logo Millls Pool is closed for humans, but is open for two more days of swimming for your canine friends. The first evening features dog paddling fun and a jumping contest. The second evening is filled with a variety of entertaining contests, giveaways and more swimming. Various pet-related businesses and organizations will be on hand during the second night only. In celebration of Drool in the Pool's 10th anniversary, 10 fabulous prizes for your furry friends will be given away during breaks in the event on each night.

Dog guards are on duty to supervise any dogs gone wild. Both the shallow play area and the main pool are open for all dogs to enjoy; the deep end is closed.
