Sports fans and Spots in Syracuse, New York can cheer for the home team as they step up to the plate to help dogs and cats who need forever homes during Bark in the Park and Pet Fest.
Taking place May 9th, Syracuse.com reports that during Pet Fest, which will be hosted by Dog Daze Pet Shop, baseball buffs can:
- meet adoptable barking buddies from 12 area rescue organizations
- find out about various Rover-related local businesses ranging from groomers to trainers
- check out an array of pet products
- get free swag for Fido
As an added treat, the first 300 four-legged fans to enter NBT Bank Stadium will go home with a foldable travel water bowl provided by the Syracuse Chiefs and Dog Daze A Healthy Pet Shop, while the first 2,000 two-legged attendees will receive a Syracuse Chiefs schedule poster as a souvenir.
When the Syracuse Chiefs take on the Durham Bulls the event will be a game changer for companion animals in need, with all of the proceeds from each $5 dog ticket sold benefiting the local animal rescue groups who take part in Pet Fest. The day of play with a higher purpose will also include the Chiefs Charitable Foundation’s 50/50 raffle, with a portion of the proceeds also going toward the paws causes.
Tickets: $8 for each person, $5 for a dog ticket
