What is Bark for Life?


The American Cancer Society “Bark For Life” (BFL) an American Cancer Society Relay fundraising event that will honor the care giving qualities of our canine “Best Friends”.

The ACS BFL honors the life-long contribution 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 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 and participants to celebrate cancer survivorship, to honor people lost to cancer, to fundraise in support of cancer research, education, awareness, patient services, advocacy, and to help eliminate the suffering that cancer causes worldwide.

Canine companions represent unconditional love, joy, security, compassion, and no judgments of human abilities or appearances. The American Cancer Society Bark For Life is an irresistible way to “take a bite out of cancer”, smile, and make new friends – canine & human. The Bark For Life contribution to the American Cancer Society Relay For Life is the total of all funds raised by the canine teams, Bark For Life participants, canine on-line fundraising, RFL teams, and community contributions.


Please come out and join us at Bark for Life there will be activities for the family including a dog walk, dog and kid costume contest, pet photos, food, activities for the kids (including the K-9 kids), Dog Bake Sale, Basket Raffles and much much more….
