Pups and caregivers gather to help Bark for Life

BERLIN, Md. – The second annual bark for life event was held in Berlin Saturday afternoon.

Dog owners from all over made their way to Stephen Decatur Park, contributing $10 per pup to enter, with all proceeds going to the American Cancer Society.


The event’s included a survivor and caregiver walk, a best canine kissing competition, and a pet costume competition.

Bark for Life not only raises money for those battling cancer, but also raises awareness that our four legged family members can develop the deadly disease.

“Cancer really does not discriminate. It doesn’t care for humans or what your race is, what your gender is. It doesn’t even care if you’re human, it will attack everyone. So when we find a cure for cancer, then we’ll also be curing it for our pets as well,” said the event’s chair Dj Thompson.

Bark for Life is co-organized by the Stephen Decatur High School Relay for Life team.
