A baseball game was not why fans rushed to Dodger Stadium on July 30. Instead, they were here to experience a different kind of “ball game” and adopt a very special “Dodger Dog.” Sixty-two of the 100 dogs in attendance were adopted, making the event the highest adoption rate of any Los Angeles Animal Services mobile adoption event, organizers told Fox11.

Dodger dogs get forever homes

The Los Angeles Dodgers, Lucy Pet Foods and all six LA City Animal Services shelters worked together to make this first-ever adoption event possible. And it won’t be the last at Dodger Stadium.

Squeaky toys will replace baseballs at a second Pups in the Park event scheduled for September 5. Not only can fans bring their furry friends to the game, they can also parade their pup around the field’s warning track. Check out the special ticket information for this game as soon as possible, as it will likely be popular with both humans and dogs.

“I think it’s something everyone should experience, in terms of giving someone a new life and a chance at happiness and a forever home, so we’re thrilled,” said Alexis Ghattas, who adopted a dog, at NBC Los Angeles.

“So glad the Dodgers opened the door for this…it’s been a great day, huh?” said former MLB baseball player Orel Hershiser. All dogs for adoption have been spayed or spayed, vaccinated, licensed and microchipped. Of course, each dog also went home with pet food.
