What is Bark For Life?

The American Cancer Society Bark For Life is a fundraising event honoring the life-long contributions of our Canine Caregivers.  It presents an opportunity for people to be empowered through their canine companion partnerships and to contribute to cancer cures through the mission of the American Cancer Society.

Canine companions demonstrate unconditional love, joy, security, compassion, and no judgments of cancer survivors abilities or appearances.  The American Cancer Society Bark For Life is an irresistible way to partner with your canine best friend, smile, and make new friends – canine & human.

For more information:  Call the American Cancer Society at 434-978-7423 or email Kelsey Burgoyne at kelsey.burgoyne@cancer.org

All proceeds benefit the American Cancer Society 2014 Relay For Life of Charlottesville/Albemarle
