Morris Animal Foundation Prepares to Make Annual K9 Cancer Walk Most "Woofed" About Event in Town

DENVER, May 17, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Join Morris Animal Foundation on Sunday, August 21, for the 3rd annual Morris Animal Foundation K9 Cancer Walk at Denver's own City Park. The event will benefit the Foundation's Canine Cancer Campaign, an initiative to fund research to prevent, treat and, ultimately, cure cancer in dogs.


Cancer is a disease that touches many of us—that is why Morris Animal Foundation is dedicated to finding a cure. An estimated 50 percent of all dogs will battle cancer. It is the No. 1 cause of death in dogs over the age of 2. All dog lovers are invited to attend and are encouraged to walk to celebrate the life of their canine best friend or walk in memory of dogs that have lost their battle with canine cancer.

Registration is now open. Rally your friends and family, and let's show our furry best friends that we are on a mission to beat canine cancer. Additional event details, including information about our virtual Sit & Stay option, can be found at

If you are interested in volunteering for this event, please email
