‘Bark For Life’ This Saturday, Dogs And Their Humans Are Invited
The American Cancer Society’s Bark For Life of the North Country is a walk for dogs and their owners to ‘bark’ back against cancer. The event takes place on Saturday, August 8th from 9 AM – Noon at KevAnna’s on Route 28 in Forestport. Bark For Life is a way to pay tribute to our favorite canines and raise funds and awareness to create a world with less cancer and more birthdays.
Our dogs are very important members of our family. They’re there for us during good times and bad. They stick by us through thick and thin. Love us no matter what the rest of the world thinks. Understand our moods and understand when we’re sick. Dogs are the unnoticed caregivers who give a special kind of support for cancer patients.
Bark For Life is a quarter-mile and one-mile noncompetitive walk on a preplanned route. Registration begins at 9 AM and the walk begins at 10 AM. Dogs and their owners can enjoy games, and vendor displays throughout the event, including a demonstration by the Oneida County Sherriff’s Department K-9 Unit. There are also contests for owner/pet look-alike, fastest retrieve, musical sits, and doggie push-ups!
Participants can pre-register online for $10 per dog at www.RelayForLife.org/BarkNorthCountryNY (or register on-site the day-of for $15 per dog). All registered dogs are given a special Bark For Life bandana the day of the event.
