What is a Bark For Life event? 

The American Cancer Society Bark For Life is a fundraising event honoring the life-long contributions 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. 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

Canine companions demonstrate unconditional love, joy, security, compassion, and no judgments of cancer survivors abilities or appearances. The American Cancer Society Bark For Life is an irresistible way to partner with your canine best friend, smile, and make new friends canine & human.

We would like to invite YOU to our Rutland County Bark For Life! It will be a fun-filled family event on Saturday, October 10th, 2015 at the Highline Lodge in Killinton, Vermont!

 Cancer In Our Community:

Cancer can affect anyone, regardless of age, gender, ethnicity or economic background:

  • One out of two men and one out of three women will be diagnosed with cancer.
  • There has been a 20% decline in cancer death rates since 1991. That means more than 1.3 million lives saved
  • There are 14.5 million cancer survivors in the US. By 2024, there will be almost 19 million.
  • In the last 20 years, breast cancer death rates have declined 32%
  • Practicing good nutrition habits, not using tobacco products and being physically active can prevent two thirds of cancer deaths.

 Where the Money Goes:

Funds raised by the American Cancer Society Relay For Life support the organization’s programs, which focus on four distinct areas: research, education, advocacy and service. Check out this great VIDEO on where your money goes for more information
