American Cancer Society Bark For Life Event Honors Canine Caregivers

Relay For Life will hold a fun-filled Bark For Life event in Sevierville to honor the life-long contributions of Canine Caregivers.

The American Cancer Society Bark For Life™ fundraising event at the Sevier County Fairgrounds on Saturday, Oct. 18, 2014 from 12:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. will celebrate those canine companions who demonstrate unconditional love, joy, security, compassion, and no judgments of cancer survivors abilities or appearances. The event will begin with a walk, followed by demonstrations, contests and games.

Canine Caregivers are Canine Companions, Guide Dogs, Service Dogs, Rescue Dogs, Therapy Dogs, Police Dogs, Cancer Survivor Dogs and Diagnostic Dogs, who with their owners are joining the American Cancer Society as Relay teams. They participate to celebrate cancer survivorship, to honor people lost to cancer, and to fundraise in support of the American Cancer Society mission of eliminating cancer though research, education, advocacy and service.

This is a family and pet friendly event open to the public. You do not need to register to attend, so bring your pets and join in the fun! Local Teams will be selling crafts and food items, kids can enjoy games, and pets can be entered into contests or get a pet portrait. Dress your pet in their Halloween costume! There will be a Top Dog Contest and a Special Bone Drop at the end of the event.
