Bark For Life is a way to partner with your canine best friend and make new friends – canine and human. Families and their dogs come together for a few hours during the day and complete a one-mile walk to honor the care giving qualities of their canine “Best Friends.”

Among those honored with be canine caregivers; guide dogs, service dogs, rescue dogs, therapy dogs, police dogs and cancer survivor dogs who with their owners are joining the American Cancer Society as Relay “packs” also known as teams.

They participate to celebrate cancer survivorship, to honor people lost to cancer, and to fundraise in support of the American Cancer Society mission of eliminating cancer through research, education, advocacy, and service.

According to a spokesman, “The advantage of the BARK is that we have fun fundraising with our best buddies our dogs! There will also be doggie games and a dress up contest, doggie demos, food and vendors.
