The Arizona Diamondbacks Foundation has teamed up with Raising Cane’s and Gabriel’s Angels to bring rescued dog, Brenly, to Chase Field with the goal of training Brenly to become a certified therapy dog.

Brenly is a golden retriever rescued by Blake Blackman-Woody with Gabriel’s Angels. The members of the Blackman-Woody family are big D-backs fans and decided to name him Brenly due to their love of watching Bob Brenly on FOX Sports Arizona during every D-backs game.

Brenly will work with Gabriel’s Angels to become a certified therapy dog through a series of training sessions on select D-backs game days at Chase Field throughout the season. The goal of the training sessions will be to teach love, trust, compassion and kindness sot that Brenly will learn to connect with children in a positive and meaningful way.

Together, this tail-wagging partnership will raise awareness of the complex issues facing at-risk children and the role that therapy animals can play in the hope and healing process.

Fans can meet Brenly as well as some of Gabriel’s Angels active Pet Therapy teams, on select Sunday D-backs games at 12 p.m. in the Phoenix Children’s Hospital Sandlot. Dates include: July 7, Aug. 4, Aug. 18 and Sept. 15. Brenly will also make special visits to the D-backs clubhouse throughout the season.
