Meet Parker

At Eat’n Park, one of our primary areas of philanthropic focus is enhancing the lives of military veterans and their families. As part of this commitment, we are excited to announce that we’re sponsoring a soon-to-be service dog who will be matched with a veteran after its training!

To help celebrate the newest member of our Eat'n Park family, we asked our team members to help us name her! Over 200 suggestions were submitted, but we just couldn’t decide. So, we asked our Facebook family, and after 3,500 votes, our new furry friend was named Parker!


Parker is a 4-month old rescue dog and is being trained through Guardian Angels Medical Service Dogs. Parker’s training will take 24 months, as she learns to mitigate the effects of conditions such as post-traumatic stress disorder, traumatic brain injury, seizure disorders and mobility issues. 

We’re truly honored to be sponsoring Parker and are looking forward to sharing her journey with all of you. Be sure to check back periodically to see what Parker has been up to!

I didn't know about Parker until today. How wonderful Eat'n Park is to help with this. Since I just found out about it, why don't you put a picture of Parker at the entrance of the business. Doesn't have to be big. Just enough to tell people how wonderful you are in doing this. Who knows, some might even want to donate.
