Take your best friend out to the ballgame!

As a supporting partner of Bark at the Park events across the country, Pets Add Life (PAL) invites baseball fans to attend a game alongside their canine companion. These events help save lives by promoting pet adoption across the nation and highlighting the many benefits of sharing life with a pet. Plus, a portion of ticket sales benefits Tony La Russa’s Animal Rescue Foundation’s (ARF) Pets and Vets program, as well as local rescue groups.

PAL is a nonprofit initiative founded by the American Pet Products Association (APPA), who in 2018, pledged $1 million over the next four years to support the expansion of ARF’s Pets and Vets program – pairing shelter dogs with veterans coping with PTSD, traumatic brain injuries, anxiety, and other service-related challenges. ARF then guides the veteran and dog through a one-year training program, free of charge, to become psychiatric service dog teams.

Thanks to Everyone That Came Out for Our 2022 Events
