LOWELL -- UMass Lowell and the Lowell Humane Society present the second annual "Pucks and Paws Night" on Saturday, Feb. 16, at 7 p.m., as the River Hawks Division I ice hockey team faces off against the Minutemen of UMass Amherst in Hockey East at the Tsongas Center at UMass Lowell, 300 Martin Luther King Jr. Way.
Fans may purchase seats in the arena's Section 110 for $15 and $5 for their dogs, which will enter the arena through a special doggie door. All dog-ticket proceeds will go to support the Lowell Humane Society, which will showcase pets up for adoption during the night.
Pet owners are required to purchase tickets in advance by calling 978-934-5751 and must provide proof their dogs have up-to-date vaccinations. Season ticket holders may exchange tickets for their usual seats for seats in Section 110 at no charge with the purchase of a $5 dog ticket.
Dogs in attendance must be on a non-retractable leash. Hydration and waste-management stations will be provided for pets on the arena's concourse. Tickets are available through the Tsongas Center at UMass Lowell box office, www.TsongasCenter.com or by calling 866-722-8780.
