Cincinnati Reds Help Dogs in Need with Bark in the Park Games

A team with major league love for their four-legged fans, dogs and their pet parents can cheer for the Cincinnati Reds during four Bark in the Park games that will help to pitch the option of pet adoption to the public.

Baseball Fun for Your Dog

Presented by Rachael Ray Nutrish and Kroger, before each Bark in the Park game at the Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati, Ohio baseball buffs and their barking buddies can enjoy an array of dog-friendly activities:

  • Rovers who dream of running the bases can tap into their inner Jackie Robinson or Johnny Bench as they promenade in a pre-game pet parade with their human parent on the track surrounding the field.
  • Attendees can shop with their dog among vendor booths at the pet expo, and meet adorable, adoptable dogs from SPCA Cincinnati who want to “play ball!” with a forever pet parent.
  • For an additional donation to SPCA Cincinnati, baseball buffs and their barking buddies can pose for a souvenir photo in front of a Reds backdrop.
