Fun Meets Happy As Saints Announce New Chuck & Don's Dog ParkST. PAUL, MN May 2, 2016
The Saints and Chuck & Don’s Pet Food & Supplies are pleased to announce a multi-year partnership, including sponsorship of the CHS Field dog park. The St. Paul Saints — who have always had the motto “Fun is Good” — found the perfect partner whose mottos is “We make pets happy!” The 17,210 square-foot dog park is complete with fire hydrants, shaded areas and plenty of room for dogs to run.
In addition to naming rights of the dog park, the Saints and Chuck & Don’s three-year partnership includes outfield signage, in-store promotions and Chuck & Don’s-sponsored activities at select games. They will also be the sponsor of a very special promotion throughout the Saints season with The Pet of the Game. Chuck & Don’s will work with local rescue shelters to bring adoptable pets out to the ballpark and promote the benefits of adopting a rescued animal.
“In addition to making pets (and their people) happy, Chuck & Don’s is committed to making a difference in the communities in which we operate,” said Bob Hartzell, Chuck & Don’s CEO. “So naturally, the St. Paul Saints partnership and dog park sponsorship are a great fit.”
On Sunday, May 22, Chuck & Don’s will sponsor the Dog Day game at 5:05 p.m. The popular annual game allows fans to bring their pets into the ballpark, on a leash, and enjoy the game with the family. The first 1,000 fans on Dog Day will also receive a free Saints “Let’s Play Ball” Dog Bandana courtesy of Chuck & Don’s. Prior to the game, the dog park will officially receive its new name in a grand re-opening ceremony.
The Chuck & Don’s staff will be getting into the baseball spirit during the season by wearing special Saints caps at each of their 24 Twin-Cities Metro locations during Saints home games. Chuck & Don’s 25th store location is set to open in Woodbury later this summer, with the Woodbury location also set to join in on the action.
