Pets, Padres Together at Petco Stadium!
“Dog Days of Summer” Baseball at Petco Park
by Kelsey Uruburu on July 26, 2011
If you haven’t already registered to bring your dog, unfortunately it’s too late this year, but there will be plenty of other people’s dogs for you to love. This year is going to be extra special because the Guinness Book of World Records officials will be present as the organizers attempt to set a world record for most dogs at a professional sporting event. Last year’s sellout event was open to 500 dogs, and this year the event has been expanded to allow up to 750 dogs to participate and become part of history.
Participating dogs will have the opportunity to attend a pre-game “tail” gate party and on-field pet parade. Prizes will be awarded to the top costumed dogs in a variety of categories. Once the game starts, dogs and their people will cheer on the Padres from the Park at the Park. Local adoption partners will also be in attendance to place homeless pets in loving forever homes. Just because you didn’t show up with a dog, doesn’t necessarily mean you will be leaving without one!
Only dogs with a valid “dog ticket” will be allowed to attend. Dogs who were approved to attend showed proof of current vaccinations and valid animal license prior to June 20, 2011. PETCO will provide animal care staff on the day of the event.
There are still tickets available for humans though, but buy ahead of time. This event sells out and when else will you get to be part of a Guinness Book of World Records, record? For more information or to submit a witty pet phrase to be displayed at the game, visit www.petco.com/petcopark. To purchase tickets visit the San Diego Padres ticket page.
Wag more, bark less and enjoy the game!
