Baseball attracts fans from all around the country, and the city of Nashville, Tennessee honored some of their furry fans with a paw-fect night just for them.
The Nashville Sounds hit a homerun with this year's first Bark in the Park on their home field First Tennessee Park on May 8. The memorable night encouraged Sounds fans to bring their four-legged companions to the ball game and raised $4,100 benefitting the local nonprofit, Agape Animal Rescue.
From big and fluffy to small and sassy, 550 dogs attended the game to watch the Sounds play the Colorado Springs Sky Sox alongside their humans. Pups were able to score prizes, take a dip in a doggy pool, and cool down with pupsickles, while their parents relaxed at our airstream with a Tito's cocktail.
Agape Animal Rescue is dedicated to finding fur-ever homes for displaced, abandoned, and mistreated dogs in the Nashville area. The nonprofit also makes it a mission to educate the community on how to be responsible and compassionate pet owners.
The next Bark in the Park will be August 15, so mark you and your pup's calendars for the final night of dog-friendly fun this season. The Sounds will be going head-to-head against the Round Rock Express, and the first 2,000 fans to arrive will receive a one-of-a-kind Sounds T-shirt designed by yours truly.

Until next time!
