Oakland Athletics To Host Bark at the Park July 18th

Pups2The Oakland Athletics will step up to the plate to help both people and pets when they face the Baltimore Orioles at their ninth annual Bark at the Park on July 18th.

Prior to the first pitch, sports-loving Spots will receive a doggie bag filled with goodies from AvoDerm, Nylabone and ADAMS; promenade with their pet parents in a parade around the warning track and take part in a Pup Rally.

A day of plays for a higher purpose, a portion of the proceeds from Bark at the Park will benefit Dogs4Diabetics, a California non-profit which trains medical-alert service dogs to discern low glucose levels in diabetic children and adults, and the Animal Rescue Foundation (ARF), which was founded by baseball great Tony La Russa and his wife Elaine in 1991 to rescue canines and cats who are facing their fate in shelters; help animal protection and human service organizations across the nation, and establish educational programs to promote compassion for people and pets.

Tickets: $15 for Plaza reserved tickets for two-legged fans; $6 for a Plaza reserved dog ticket

When: July 18, 2014 (registration begins at 4:15 p.m.; pup parade at 5 p.m.; pup rally at 6:15 p.m. and the game at 7:05 p.m.)

Where: O.co Coliseum at 7000 Coliseum Way in Oakland, California
