Bark at the Park

Though the game didn’t end quite the way we fans wanted, the first Bark at the Park event of the season at T-Mobile park was a spectacular affair. There were furry critters everywhere you looked! At least in the designated “furry critter” section. Despite a forecast of clouds and possible rain, the weather was very agreeable–sunny with not much heat.

Attending the event along with many, many pup owners were a few nonprofit businesses that help dogs and cats (and some other animals too!) in and around the Seattle Area. We were greeted with adoptable pups from multiple rescues. And even those without live animals present had binders full of bios for available pets in their foster programs. It was simply delightful to see the interest from fans and the exposure for these hopeful pets! Check out the sites for some of the organizations:

The team at T-Mobile park did a fantastic job preparing for the four-legged fans. There were many large community drinking bowls (pools?) and various areas with fake grass for them to do their business. With the pup seating in the 300 level, there was ample room to walk around on the 3rd level and socialize with other pets and their owners. They also had a portable water bowl giveaway for the dogs who attended and did a great job making sure all the pup toys and fashion items were readily available for owners and their pups to purchase.

Seattle Pup looks forward to attending more Bark at the Park events to meet more friendly owners and adorable pups!
