Collection Drive Added to Tomorrow’s “Ballpark Pup” Public Appearance at Miller Park

For tomorrow morning’s event featuring Hank the Dog at Miller Park, the Brewers are encouraging fans to bring new pet items with them to donate. A “Wish List” is below, and the items collected will be distributed to area animal rescue organizations.

 The Brewers also ask that fans leave their pets at home tomorrow as they will not be able to come into Miller Park or the store.

As a reminder, fans will be allowed entry into the Miller Park Hot Corner entrance at 6 am tomorrow, and the Team Store by Majestic will open at 7 am. Hank t-shirts and other memorabilia will be available for the first time to area fans and with the purchase of any Hank item, 20% of the retail price will be donated to the Wisconsin Humane Society. Plus, fans will have an opportunity to meet Hank that morning at Miller Park. (Note: As of 11am CT on 3/18/14, Hank merchandise is now available online as well.)

Hank first appeared at camp on February 17, the day of the first workout for pitchers and catchers. The Brewers have worked closely with the Arizona and Wisconsin Humane Societies since that first day, and their staff provided counsel on how best to care for Hank’s basic needs as he adjusted to his new surroundings. Hank’s circle of caregivers in Phoenix worked tirelessly to make sure that he had the best care possible until his “forever home” was determined.

Assorted additional Hank gear like pennants, locker name plates, buttons and kids gear will also be available.

Hank made frequent appearances at Spring Training games in a concourse booth, where fans lined up for an opportunity to have their photo taken with Hank in exchange for a voluntary donation to the Humane Society. Through these and other opportunities, Hank has already helped raise thousands of dollars to support the cause.

Hank arrived in Milwaukee last night on a Southwest Airlines charter flight.
