Bark in the Park, Queens, NY, April 21, 2012

Pin It

Scoring a home run with dog devotees, the New York Mets will go to bat to raise funds for orphan Fidos and felines during Bark in the Park, an annual event benefiting the world’s largest no-kill rescue and adoption organization.

Presented by Dick Van Patten’s Natural Balance Pet Foods, April 21, 2012 will be a day of play with a purpose, starting with sports-loving Spots promenading with their pet parents in a Dog Parade (weather permitting) prior to the first pitch, which four-legged fans and their families will watch from designated Pepsi Porch seats.

Dogs in attendance must be Fido-and family-friendly, leashed at all times (both in and around Citi Field) on a leash no longer than 4 – 6 feet, and be healthy and fully vaccinated.

All of the proceeds from each tail-wagger’s $10 ticket and a portion of the profit from each $30 human ticket will benefit North Shore Animal League America.
