HARTFORD, March 25, 2014:  Global Spectrum, operators of the XL Center and Hartford Wolf Pack, today announced that the Wolf Pack’s home game this Friday night, March 28 vs. the Springfield Falcons will feature the inaugural “Sonar Saves” dog adoption night.

Hartford Wolf PackSonar, the Wolf Pack’s lovable and cuddly mascot, will be welcoming to the XL Center atrium on Friday a number of his canine friends, who are earnestly looking for their forever home.  Two animal-rescue organizations, The Simon Foundation of Bloomfield, CT (www.thesimonfoundation.org) and Manchester, CT’s Our Companions (www.ourcompanions.org), will be on hand in the atrium from 6:00-7:00 PM, illustrating all of the joys of providing a much-needed loving home to a friendly pooch.

The Simon Group will have dogs at the XL Center that are available for adoption.  No adoptions will be completed at the game, but fans can fill out adoption paperwork if they find a dog they would like to adopt.  Our Companions will not have dogs at the game, but will have pictures of furry friends that they have available for adoption, as well as paperwork associated with the adoption process.

“Dogs” will be the key word of the night on Friday, as all Friday-night Wolf Pack home games are “Dogs and Drafts” nights, with $1 hot dogs and $2 beers through the start of the second period, presented by Marc’s Appliance Warehouse, located at 75 Prospect Ave., Hartford, CT.
