West Virginia Power to Welcome Leashed Pets to the Ballpark


A West Virginia minor league baseball team is going to the dogs for two games this season.

The Kanawha-Charleston Humane Association says it is partnering with the West Virginia Power for Pets in the Park games at Appalachian Power Park in Charleston.

The association says in a statement that for $3, dogs on leashes will be allowed into games on June 7 and Aug. 10. Tickets for pet owners are $8.

The statement says the proceeds from the two home games will benefit homeless pets in Kanawha County. Association staff and volunteers will be at both games with pets ready for adoption, along with shelter information.

The West Virginia Power is a Class A affiliate of the Pittsburgh Pirates.
