Milwaukee Brewers fans will have a chance to take home a Hank the “Ballpark Pup” Bobblehead during the Brewers’ Sept. 13 home game against the Cincinnati Reds, when the Brewers will also celebrate Wisconsin Humane Society Day.
A share of proceeds from the game’s ticket sales will benefit the Wisconsin Humane Society’s “Hank Fund,” which supports stray animals the humane society takes in from the Milwaukee Area Domestic Animal Control Commission. The fund also supports the care of stray animals at the humane society’s Ozaukee and Racine locations.
“We had Hank down here with us for almost a month, and he became one of the most popular guys in the clubhouse,” said Brewers pitcher Brandon Kintzler. “We wanted to do something special to benefit other animals who are stray, homeless or have other needs, and there’s no better cause than helping build this fund.”
Brewers players will boost donations made on Sept. 13 with their own contributions.
As part of Wisconsin Humane Society Day, Miller Park will host several initiatives that promote the humane society’s mission to care for animals in need and adopt them out to good homes. In addition to holding an Adopt-a-Pet event, during which fans can meet animals up for adoption, Miller Park and the Brewers Community Foundation will collect new pet supplies to be given to local rescue organizations. Items accepted will include canned or dry puppy, cat and kitten food; dog and cat toys (not stuffed); dog and cat treats; dog harnesses; cat litter; and stainless steel food and water bowls.
The Sept. 13 game starts at 6:10 p.m. Game tickets can be purchased at www.brewers.com, at the Miller Park Box Office, or by calling 414-902-4000.
