Join us April 24th for the 2nd Annual K9 Cancer Walk

More than six million dogs are diagnosed with cancer each year with half of all dogs being affected by cancer—but together, we can beat this disease. Join us on April 24th at beautiful Elk Grove Regional Park in Elk Grove, 11 miles South of Sacramento and walk for a cure. 100% of all walk registration fees, vendor fees and donations go directly to support Morris Animal Foundation's Canine Cancer Campaign to fund research for canine cancer, early detection methods, effective treatments and ultimately a cure!

After the walks, speakers will discuss canine cancer, prevention, wellness and other topics. Learn the facts about canine cancer and how to examine your dog for early signs of cancer.
