Wet Noses’ Day Out at the Ballpark
Earlier this month, Wet Noses had the opportunity give back to the Monroe community – and it was a blast! We had a chance to work with the Monroe YMCA & Monroe Rotary Club’s Miracle League – a no-cost baseball league for special needs youth in the local community. Thanks to a great volunteer turnout of team members, Wet Noses was able to play two baseball games with the young athletes, helping them hit, run the bases, and score runs each inning. Our staff members enjoyed playing with the young athletes so much that a few even stayed to play an additional game beyond the originally planned two games!
Monroe has been Wet Noses’ home for nearly 20 years, and we were overjoyed to have the chance to give back to the community through the Miracle League.The Miracle League is a fantastic program that is all-volunteer operated and a fantastic chance for special needs youth in the community to get on a field and enjoy organized sports – often the only chance they have to do so.
The Miracle League’s 2015 has come to a close this season, but we all can’t wait for another opportunity to sponsor and support them in 2016 & beyond!

Join Us For Miracle League Baseball This Saturday!
MONROE, Washington – Wet Noses Organic Dog Treat Company is proud to announce that it will be partnering with the Monroe YMCA & Monroe Rotary Club to sponsor this weekend’s Miracle League! Organized by the Monroe YMCA, the Miracle League gives local youth with special needs the opportunity to suit up and enjoy a game of baseball each weekend. First pitch is this Saturday, June 6th at 9a.m. at Monroe Rotary Field in Monroe, WA. Games are open to the public.
“Monroe has been Wet Noses’ home since the beginning, and we love giving back to our community,” said Jazz Galligan, founder of Wet Noses. “The opportunity to partner with Monroe YMCA & the Miracle League is a fantastic chance for our staff to give back and support the special needs community in our backyard.”
The Miracle League was founded by the Monroe Rotary Club to offer local youth with special needs the chance to enjoy organized baseball in their own community. Many players have physical & cognitive special needs that would prevent them from playing in traditional baseball leagues and games. Thanks to the Miracle League, these children & young adults can experience the fun & camaraderie of baseball both on & off the field. Games are played at Monroe Rotary Field, which was designed & built to accommodate special needs players in ways that other fields cannot. Monroe Rotary Field is located at 276 Sky River Parkway, Monroe WA 98272.
