Last year, with the help of more than 600 dog lovers, Morris Animal Foundation was able to raise more than $83,000 to help dogs lead longer, healthier, cancer-free lives. With your help we can do it again!

Registration is now open. Rally your friends and family, and let's show our furry best friends that we are on a mission to beat canine cancer. Additional event details, including information about our virtual Sit & Stay option, can be found at www.K9CancerWalk.org.

Cancer is a disease that touches many of us--that is why Morris Animal Foundation is dedicated to finding a cure. An estimated 50 percent of all dogs will battle cancer. It is the No. 1 cause of death in dogs over the age of 2. All dog lovers are invited to attend and are encouraged to walk to celebrate the life of their canine best friend or walk in memory of dogs that have lost their battle with canine cancer.

If you are interested in volunteering for this event, please email [email protected].
