"We made the decision to once again support Bark at the Park, first and foremost because it celebrates the bond between people and their dogs," said Colin Meyers, executive director of BIVI's Pet division. "It's a great chance to meet pet owners and talk to them about their dogs and keeping them healthy." Fans who purchased tickets for the sold-out event get a human and canine game ticket and a Royals dog leash. A $5 donation from the ticket purchase goes to Royals Charities to benefit Wayside Waifs.
