'Bark for Life' Will Bring Dogs to the Drive-In This Sunday

New American Cancer Society Relay for Life event honors canine caregivers at the Southington Drive-In.

Many people dealing with cancer find great comfort in the affection and companionship of their pets. The American Cancer Society has created a new Relay for Life-style event to honor those canine caregivers: Bark for Life.

Anyone with a dog is welcome to attend Southington’s first annual Bark for Life at the Southington Drive-In on Sunday, October 14, 2012, from noon to 4 p.m. This fundraising event features a dog walk, contests (best dog trick, loudest bark, best costume, etc.), vendors and demonstrations.

The registration fee is $20 for one dog, $30 for two dogs. Each registered pooch gets a Bark for Life bandana. Humans raising $100 or more get a Bark for Life T-shirt.
