Annually, at the end of summer, Legion Stadium allows its pool to go to the dogs.

The YMCA of Southeastern N.C. and City of Wilmington continue the tradition of the Pooch Plunge at 2131 Carolina Beach Rd. slated to take place four days this week, Sept. 7 through 11.

Cost is $5 per day (cash only) for dogs to take a final dip this season. Dogs must be up to date on vaccinations; aggressive dogs are not allowed.

Their human companions will not be allowed in the pool.

The schedule is as follows:

Wednesday, Sept. 7, 3:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.
Friday, Sept. 9, 3:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.
Saturday, Sept. 10, noon – 5 p.m.
Sunday, Sept. 11, noon – 5 p.m.
