Bark for Life

Asheville Dogs Are Raising Money to Fight Cancer!

Animal Hospital of North Asheville Thanks Them with a Sponsorship

On August 7, 2010 there will be a parade of dogs in Asheville who are giving their all to fight cancer as they participate in the American Cancer Society’s Bark for Life. Animal Hospital of North Asheville is a sponsor of the event to show our appreciation for these dogs getting out to fight cancer in people! We also appreciate the American Cancer Society for their recognition of the important role that companion animals play in our lives when they say:

Canine companions represent unconditional love, joy, security, compassion, and no judgments of human abilities or appearances. Bark For Life is an irresistible way to “take a bite out of cancer”, smile, and make new friends canine & human.

The American Cancer Society Bark For Life, “Bark For Life” (ACS BFL) is a full American Cancer Society Relay fundraising event that honors the care giving qualities of our canine “Best Friends”. Monies raised contribute to and are included in the annual Relay For Life event total.

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.
