LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) -- A three-day event dedicated to dogs and raising money is underway. It's the 8th annual Pooch Plunge.

It happened Tuesday at Lafayette's Armstrong Park from five to eight in the evening and it is also going on Wednesday and Thursday.

Dog owners can take up to two dogs to the pool and go for a swim.

One doggo is $10 and two are $15.

All of the money raised is going toward animal shelters in need or animal group needing help.

One corgi owner said she is glad she took her pups to the pool.

"We just brought them," said Carrie McCain. "This is our first to come and they love to swim so we just wanted to see how it would turn out."

In the past money has gone toward K-9 vests and masks for animals rescued in fires.

The goal is to raise $5,000.

Dogs must have the rabies vaccine to be able to play in the pool.
