Pups Promenade for Cancer Research March 23

March 05, 2019

Show your dog “Who’s a good boy” and take a bite out of cancer during Bark for Life, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, March 23, at Riverstone.

Presented by Lake Olympia Animal Hospital and Sugar Land Veterinary Specialists, the annual promenade for pups will take place at The Club at Riverstone, 18353 University Boulevard. The walk benefits the American Cancer Society.

Along with the non-competitive walk, the free and public event features Houston Disc Dogs performances, a DJ, face painting, contests, inflatables, balloon twisters and food trucks — as well as vendors offering a variety of pooch-worthy items. The first 200 dogs will receive pup-friendly swag bags.

Fort Bend Animal Services will be onsite uniting pooch-less people with “fur-ever” friends through an Adopt a Dog for a Day program.

Veterinarians are on the front lines when it comes to defeating canine cancer, and we are thrilled to have Lake Olympia Animal Hospital and Sugar Land Veterinary Specialists as our Top Dog sponsors. Our Golden Paw sponsor Nature Dog Photography will be snapping “Doggie & Me” photos that you and your furry friend will treasure forever. Best Entertainers, Natural Pawz and All Around Bounce are this year’s Best in Show sponsors.

Bark for Life recognizes that dogs can be essential to defeating cancer for some patients, as well as also falling victim to the deadly disease themselves. According to the American Cancer Society, there will be 1,762,450 new cancer cases diagnosed this year. Cancer also is the leading cause of death among domestic dogs with more than six million canines diagnosed each year.

Sign up here to walk with your dog and raise money for cancer research, then come out for some furry fun.
