The Shawnee North Family Aquatic Center went to the dogs Monday night. For two hours, people could bring their furry four legged friends to the pool for a swim.

The $5 admission was given to the Second Chance Animal Refuge Society in Auburn.

"In our society today so many people work, so when they get home they got to find activities for their dogs who need exercise, they need to get out," Maureen Cummins, Dir., of the Second Chance Animal Refuge Center said. "When there are more things that are available to our companion pets the better."

The fun shifts to the Blaisdell Family Aquatic Center from 6 to 8p.m., Tuesday night.

Shawnee County's pool season wrapped up Sunday, only the Midwest Health Aquatic Center will stay open weekends, through Labor day.
