BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - The stands at Coca-Cola Field were filled with more than just people on Saturday.
The Buffalo Bisons hosted its annual Dog Day where fans can bring their pets to the baseball game.
Dog owners Anna and Ryan Hensey said, "We work all day, and we really don't spend enough time with our dogs. And this is a really good chance to spend a lot of time with them."
Director of Public Relations at Buffalo Bisons Brad Bisbing said, "It's a great opportunity to share the past time with your best friend."
Before the first pitch, a dog parade was led by Western New York's favorite Jack Russell Terrier, Phoenix. Organizers of the event thought there was no better dog to lead the parade than Phoenix, especially after everything he's gone.
The Jack Russell Terrier who nearly died after being set on fire, now looks to be doing much better. Phoenix has become the "Poster Pup" of the City of Buffalo Animal Shelter.
The Bisons invited them and the SPCA to the ballpark to show off some other animals available for adoption.
Kerry Neaf from Friends of Buffalo Animal Shelter said, "It's all dog lovers who are coming to the game today with their own dogs. So,we brought 5 adoptable dogs with us, and we're hoping somebody falls in love."
Dog Day is an annual event supported by the Buffalo Bisons.
