Bark for Life upcoming

TROY — The American Cancer Society Bark For Life will be held at 11 a.m. June 27 at Duke Park Bark Park, Troy

Bark for Life is a noncompetitive walk event for dogs and their owners to raise funds and awareness for the American Cancer Society’s fight against cancer. The contribution our canine companions make towards our health and well-being is undeniable. Canine companions demonstrate unconditional love, joy, security, compassion and no judgments of cancer survivor’s abilities or appearances.

The American Cancer Society’s Bark For Life honors that life-long contribution and is a way to partner with your canine best friend and make new friends — canine and human.

Bring your best canine friend and join other participants for the event starting with a walk, and then continuing with contests and games. Participants will be able to visit sponsor tables, have some ice cream or get information on adopting a pet from SCARF.

Joe Laber and Hits105.5 will be broadcasting live from the event and Stoneyridge Veterinary Service will be there to help s well.

The cost per dog is $10 online or $25 day of the event.
