Pooch Plunge

Fort Belvoir’s Connelly Outdoor Pool at the Officers Club “goes to the dogs,” Saturday when MWR wraps up another summer swim season with the 2018 Pooch Plunge, an opportunity for canine community members to get in one last dip before fall.

The event runs from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and the cost is $3 per dog (people are free).

The Pooch Plunge is the one day out of the year when the dogs can enjoy free reign over the pool, diving into the water to retrieve toys and balls, swimming laps, enjoying a snack or two or just interacting with their fellow animals on a warm September day.

No registration is required to participate.
