Sunday, June 9th marks the 3rd annual Bark in the Park event at Chase Field (401 E. Jefferson Street, Phoenix). This annual fundraiser for the Arizona Humane Society kicks off at 11am with a pre-game Puppy Rally and vendor fair followed by a Puppy Parade on Chase Field’s warning track. At 1:10pm, the Diamondbacks will take the field against the NY Giants, making it an event neither man nor dog will want to miss.
Thirsty pooches can take advantage of ample water inside the air-conditioned field (bring your own food and treats, however). To be admitted, all dogs must be at least six-months old with a valid dog license and a copy of their current vaccinations (from a licensed vet, of course). Tickets start at $18 per person and per pet—no walk-ups are permitted so register in advance at the Arizona Diamondbacks Bark in the Park page. Ticket pick-up and check-in will be at Gate J, under the shade of the Seventh Street Bridge. Just like any outdoor excursion, please provide a leash and protective footwear for your dog’s feet. The pavement between the parking lots and the stadium can be extremely hot.
With over two-hundred dogs in attendance in past years, you’ll want to grab your tickets today and make plans for a memorable day at the ballpark this weekend. Go D-Backs!
