A sure sign that summer is around the corner, the BlueClaws teeing off and 95.9 The Rat’s Bark In The Park… rolling out the red carpet for our favorite four-legged friends!

Bring your dog to our annual Bark in the Park on Sunday, May 21st from 10am to 1pm at ShoreTown Ballpark, home of the Jersey Shore BlueClaws!

We’ll have a ton of fun – FOR FREE – before the gates to the game open up.  Carl & Dave will be hosting fun contests for your pup like the America’s Got Tail-ent doggie talent show, The Pupper Kissing Contest (yep:  let your dog lick your face the longest for prizes!) and more!

And of course, the most special part will be the “Doggie Adoption Showcase” on our *rescue runway* as local animal shelters and rescue groups will be on site with the areas most adoptable dogs!  The dogs will actually walk on the Red Carpet!

Jimmy Steal will broadcast LIVE at the event from 10a-1p!

You & your dog can attend the 1pm BlueClaws game with the purchase of a game ticket and “Paw Pass!”
