Metro Pets

By Sharon Gomes Thomas

Summer may be over soon but the lovely outdoor pursuits of baseball and a picnic can still be enjoyed in September – and you can enjoy it with your pooch while contributing to a very worthy cause.

North Shore Animal League America and the New York Mets baseball team will host the 2nd Annual Dog Day at Shea. This howling event will take place on Saturday, September 23rd at 7:10 p.m. Bring your human and canine buddies to Shea Stadium and enjoy the game in the Picnic Area. And cheer on the Mets as they take on the Washington Nationals.

You’ll be able to participate in a pre-game parade around Shea’s track. Additionally, there will be auditions for David Letterman’s Stupid Pet Tricks – this may be Fido’s big chance at his 15 minutes of fame.
