BREVARD COUNTY • VIERA, FLORIDA – Supermodel and actress Kate Upton was back in Brevard on Wednesday to host the Grand Slam Adoption Event at Space Coast Stadium, sponsored by the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office and Matthew Development, LLC.
Supermodel and actress Kate Upton hosted the GRAND SLAM ADOPTION EVENT featuring lovable dogs from the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office Animal Services before first pitch at Nationals vs. Tigers spring training game at Space Coast Stadium in Viera Florida.
Upton attended the event, helped in giving out the limited edition GRAND SLAM ADOPTION EVENT t-shirts, played with lovable adoptable dogs that were onsite, posed for pictures with them and met attendees who checked out the dogs – some of whom adopted them on site.
Upton was helped by Tigers’ pitcher Justin Verlander, who came out to support the adoptable animals and greeted fans.
“I love the work that the Sheriff’s Office does and wanted to do my part to encourage the adoption of these loveable animals who need homes,” said Kate Upton.
Upton got involved with the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office Animal Services via her sister, Christie Williams, who works with the shelter. An animal lover, Upton has three adopted dogs of her own, and has visited the shelter during trips home to Florida.
The adoption event featured 20 lovable dogs from the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office Animal Services.
