Some 30 dogs and their owners came out to enjoy the second annual Pooch Plunge at Mills Pond Park pool on Tuesday evening.

“I thought it was very successful,” said Courtney Hewett, who is recreation supervisor/aquatics director for Canton Parks and Recreation. “I’m glad the weather held out. We look forward to doing it in the future.”

The event, held one day after the pool closed residents, benefitted The Friends of Canton Dog Park, a group that is in the process of obtaining non-profit status and will begin fundraising for a dog park they are hoping to build on Commerce Drive. Approximately $300 was raised.
