5TH ANNUAL BARK IN THE PARK
The Planet Dog Foundation Teams Up With the Portland Police Department
To Support the K-9 Unit
Dogs and their families are invited to enjoy an evening of baseball while raising valuable funds to support the Canine Unit of the Portland Police Department.
Bark in the Park ticket holders sit in the 3rd base bleacher section with all access to the “birthday section” behind the bleachers. There will be dogs up for adoption, a grassy relief area, wading pool, canine watering station, dog treats and games for pups and their families. Dog valets will also be on hand to care for pets so people can visit the concessions.
