PEORIA, Ariz. -- Baseball fans can enjoy a spring training game with their four-legged friends Sunday while supporting homeless pets.

Dogs of all ages, sizes and breeds are invited to sit in the "paw-tio" section at the Peoria Sports Complex for the Cincinatti Reds versus San Diego Padres game.

Tickets are $7 per person and $4 per dog. The Arizona Humane Society says 100 percent of the dog tickets will benefit homeless pets like Rocky, a 4-year-old German shepherd who will deliver the "first fetch."

Rocky and other homeless dogs will be available for adoption at the event.

The Peoria Sports Complex is located at 16101 N. 83rd Avenue.

Human tickets can be puchased online at www.azhumane.org/dogdog. Pet tickets are available at the gate.

First fetch is at 1:05 p.m.
