Cancer survivors, volunteers, and community members will unite to honor the lifelong contributions of canine caregivers at the annual American Cancer Society Bark for Life event on Oct. 28 from 9 a.m. to noon at Monrovia’s Library Park, located at 321 S. Myrtle Ave. Funds raised help the American Cancer Society attack cancer in dozens of ways, each of them critical to achieving a world without cancer – from developing breakthrough therapies to building supportive communities, from providing empowering resources to deploying activists to raise awareness.

By joining the Bark for Life of Monrovia-Arcadia-Duarte, you can help the American Cancer Society attack cancer from every angle. These dogs demonstrate unconditional love, joy, compassion, and no judgments of cancer survivors’ abilities or appearances.

Bark for Life will begin with registration at 8:30 a.m. and followed by the opening ceremony at 9. The Bark for Life Disc Dogs Performance will begin promptly at 10 a.m. followed by the “Howl-o-ween’ costume contest at 11. The event will end with a closing ceremony, raffle and the announcement of the auction prize winner at noon.
