Join the Northwest Indiana Oilmen for the second annual Bark in the Park event at Oil City Stadium on July 5, 2014. Fans will be able to bring their furry friends along with them to watch the NWI Oilmen face the Southland Vikings. Along with this, half of the revenue generated from ticket sales will be going to the Gimme Shelter. For those who don't know about the shelter, Whiting Animal Control (Gimme Shelter) is a no-kill shelter. The location is a 1.5-car garage found on 1938 Clark Street in Whiting, converted into a shelter. They take care of the sick and make sure that the animals are cared for and vetted (seen by a vet and given shots and whatever else is necessary to make them well). The shelter runs off donations, and the owners do it for the love of animals. The Oilmen support this cause, so come out and have a fun night under the lights with your pooch and help support the Gimme Shelter!
