‘Bark in the Park’ afternoon to benefit Humane Society

‘Bark in the Park’ afternoon to benefit Humane Society

If you haven’t been to the new Marlins Park yet, here is a chance to bring your entire family — both two and four-legged members — to the ballpark, and help a worthy cause at the same time.

“Bark at the Park,” which takes place on Sunday, June 10, at 1:10 p.m., invites families to watch the Miami Marlins play the Tampa Bay Rays. People tickets, including children over age 3, are $15, and doggy tickets are $10. All proceeds from the purchase of the doggy tickets go to the Humane Society of Greater Miami.

To make this day even more fun, the Humane Society of Greater Miami asks guests to submit a photo of their dogs in the best Marlins’ attire and win the photo contest. Go to <www.marlins.com/bark> to submit the photo. The person with the winning photo will have his or her photo displayed on Marlins Vision, as well as receive four tickets to a future Marlins game and an autographed baseball.

Tickets no longer can be purchased on the day of the game. Visit <www.marlins.com/bark> so you won’t be left out. Seats are assigned and availability is limited, so if you want to attend with friends make sure to purchase the tickets together. To purchase an on-site garage parking pass, go to <www.marlins.com/parking> and passes are $15 per car.

Also, Marlins starting pitcher Mark Buehrle and his wife, Jamie, have developed a new program called Buehrle’s Buddies, and they are asking fans to donate any new or gently used dog toys, blankets and beds at the collection bin which will be located outside of the First Base Entrance, upon entering the ballpark. All donated items at Bark at the Park on June 10 will be given to the Humane Society of Greater Miami.

Marlins Park is located at 501 Marlins Way in Miami, on the site of the former Orange Bowl. Guests must enter the ballpark through the First Base Entrance (located on the corner of NW Fourth Street and 14th Avenue). Guests needing ADA accessibility should enter through the First Base Dugout Club and take the elevator to the Vista Level. Dog owners must carry their dog’s rabies certificate on them.
