08/08/2011 7:11 PM ET
PHOENIX - The Arizona Diamondbacks will host their first Bark in the Park presented by Starkweather Roofing with a portion of the proceeds benefitting the Arizona Humane Society at Chase Field on Saturday, Aug. 13 for the 5:10 p.m. game between the D-backs and New York Mets.

"We are very excited to host Bark in the Park for the first time at Chase Field and donate a portion of the ticket sales to the Arizona Humane Society," said D-backs' President & CEO Derrick Hall. "As a passionate dog owner myself, this event allows owners and their pets to spend time in an exciting environment while cheering on the team and supporting a great cause."

The Bark in the Park festivities will include a pre-game Puppy Parade for owners and their dogs followed by a Puppy Party in the Miller Lite Diamond Club during the game. The D-backs will provide water and doggie bags but owners are asked to bring their own dog food.

The cost for the event, which includes a ticket in the Miller Lite Diamond Club for the game, is $20 per owner and $20 per dog. The D-backs and Starkweather Roofing will donate $5 from each ticket to the Arizona Humane Society.

"We couldn't think of anything better than watching America's national pastime with man's best friend by your side," said Guy Collison, AHS Executive Director. "The Arizona Humane Society would like to thank the Arizona Diamondbacks for their continued support of AHS' lifesaving programs and services that benefit the over 44,000 animals that enter our shelter each year."
