Pet parents and their dogs can cheer on the Arizona Diamondbacks as the team takes on the San Diego Padres (and pitches the option of pet adoption in the process!) at a Bark at the Park game.
Pre-Game Fun for Fido
Prior to the first pitch baseball buffs and their barking buddies can enjoy an array of dog-friendly activities!
Totally righteous Rovers will wow the crowd with their mad skills on a surfboard in the Gnarly Crankin’ Wave Maker! Currently on a 20-city “Wave Tour II,” the Wave Maker (which helped to make Guinness World Record history during the 2017 Rose Parade as an attraction on the longest and heaviest float ever) is shining a spotlight on Lucy Pet Products, a family-owned and operated business which is generating a wave of excitement in the world of animal advocacy. Offering dog and cat care products with a cause, all of the net proceeds from sales of Lucy Pet Products go toward furthering The Lucy Pet Foundation‘s efforts to lower the staggering euthanasia rate in US animal shelters. Last year alone The Lucy Pet Foundation spayed/neutered over 4,600 companion animals in its free, LA-based spay & neuter and adoption mobile clinic, and the non-profit is working for the day when there are Lucy Pet Foundation spay/neuter and pet adoption mobile clinics in every major US city.
Here’s a look at some cool canines conquering the waves on the Gnarly Crankin’ Wave Maker during a tour stop at the World Dog Expo:
Families can take their four-legged sports fan to the stadium’s activity center, where there will be plenty of Fido-centric fun and free samples of pet merchandise.
Dogs who love the D-backs can tap into their inner A.J. Pollack or or David Peralta as they promenade on the warning track with a pet parent during a pre-game Puppy Parade.
