Valley Strong Ballpark Goes Dogs | Lifestyles
Valley Strong Ballpark not only opens the doors to fans on Friday, April 8 for opening night, but also to dogs.
The Visalia Rawhide have announced a unique partnership that has community members wagging their tails. The team partnered with the California Service Dog Academy (CSDA) to open Sentinel Dog Park.
“CSDA is proud to work with the Visalia Rawhide to bring Sentinel Dog Park to the ballpark. We look forward to continuing this effort so that service animals, their handlers, well-behaved dogs and owners have a place to take a break while enjoying the American national pastime. We are grateful that Visalia Rawhide gave us the opportunity to be part of their community,” said Matthew Corso, Executive Director.
“Our new partnership with California Service Dog Academy is exciting.” says Sam Sigal, owner of Visalia Rawhide. “Being able to provide a space for our fans to bring their beloved puppies is truly an honor. We are thrilled to be able to provide this to the community.”
CSDA provides service dogs to veterans and civilians with disabilities through their Sentinel Dogs program and the CARE Dogs program.
They also have the Canines for Community Outreach program which partners with businesses and organizations in our community by training their dogs for socialization in hopes of providing relief to those in need and helping to brighten their day.
