American Cancer Society Bark For Life
DESCRIPTION: What is the American Cancer Society Bark For Life? The American Cancer Society Bark For Life and Vendor Show offers a unique opportunity to join a group of dog lovers in the Pittsburgh Area. Over 100 dogs are expected to join together to fight cancer and enjoy some quality time with their owners and other canines.
American Cancer Society Bark For Life honors the lifelong contributions of our canine caregivers. It empowers canine caregivers and their owners to contribute to the fight against cancer through their involvement with the American Cancer Society.
Canine caregivers are canine companions, guide dogs, service dogs, cancer survivor dogs, and diagnostic dogs who, with their owners, are joining the ACS to help finish the fight against cancer. They participate to celebrate cancer survivorship, to honor those lost to cancer and to fund raise in support of the society’s mission to finish the fight!
Canine companions demonstrate unconditional love, joy, security, and compassion to cancer survivors. They do not judge them for their abilities or for their appearance. Bark For Life offers survivors and any dog lover the opportunity to partner with their canine best friends to create new connections and share a chance to smile as they come together to fight cancer!
Events for the day are the Opening Ceremony, Blessing of the Animals, Canine Relay Walk, demonstrations begin, canine games, contests, Bone Drop Raffle with South Park / Broughton Fire Department, and Closing Ceremony.
