DENVER and SACRAMENTO, Calif., April 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Northern California dog lovers are currently "pawing" for top team honors as they raise funds and awareness for the 3rd annual Morris Animal Foundation K9 Cancer Walk in Elk Grove, Calif., on May 7. Sign up today and join members of your local community. You can walk in memory of dogs that have lost their battle with canine cancer or celebrate those that have survived.
Sadly, an estimated 50 percent of all dogs will battle cancer, and it remains the No. 1 cause of death in dogs over the age of 2 years. Proceeds from the walk will benefit Morris Animal Foundation's Canine Cancer Campaign, a national effort to help dogs live longer, healthier, cancer-free lives.
So far, participants have rallied to raise nearly half of the event fundraising goal. Sign up today and help continue the fight against canine cancer. Online registration is now open—and discounted registration closes Monday, April 25. To sign up or for additional information, visit www.K9CancerWalk.org or call 800.243.2345.
The 3rd annual K9 Cancer Walk in Elk Grove will take place on May 7 at 9:30 a.m.
Proud sponsors of this year's walk include Eukanuba, the Orvis Company, PetSafe, Petplan, Paul Mitchell Schools, John Paul Pet, V101.1, VCA Animal Hospitals and Franklin Ranch Pet Hospital and Hotel and Loomis Basin Veterinary Clinic.
