Pooch, who earlier this spring was named "Canine superhero to the environment"
The tailgating party is located at 4040 S Normal, Chicago which is the headquarters location of USbones' parent company, Dizzy Dogg Industries. The event precedes the Dog Day Game being played at 7:30 PM at US Cellular field by the Chicago White Sox
Admission to the tailgate party is only $5.00 and for $10 attendees receive a goodies bag.
Chris Dignan, founder of the Dog Saving Network invited Pooch to perform at the tailgate party. Digan's organization is helping USbones with the event.
Sanderson says, "The reason Chris invited us is that we strongly support the work the Dog Saving Network does in raising awareness of homeless dogs."
Both Dignan and Sanderson believe that by showing the pubic what amazing things dogs that are adopted from shelters can do, they can help find more homes for shelter dogs.
In a recent report NBC Nightly New with Brian Williams (http://www.msnbc.msn.com/
Max A Pooch shows humans that reducing litter is so easy a pooch can do it. He does this by picking up plastic bottles and other litter and depositing it in its proper place. Sanderson explains, "Max is a throwaway dog, and by picking up litter he reminds people of the fact millions of dogs are thrown away annually as if they were of no more consequence than litter. He raise awareness of the plight of these dogs."
Pooch is also a nominee for the Emerging Hero Dog Category http://www.herodogawards.org/
“We are so close to the Cell (US Cellular Field) and we have the space so why not host a party that will help out the rescue community?” said Kyle Wessels, CEO of Dizzy Dog Industries, the parent company of US Bones.
Dignan says, “In addition to Max A Pooch there are plenty of other dog friendly events. For example there is the best baseball costume contest, and attendees can get training tips and watch demonstrations ,and a dog trick contest, plus many dogs for adoption. This is definitely a dog friendly event.”
