Welcome to PuppyUp Des Moines 2019!

In lieu of a physical walk this year, we are planning several separate fundraisers later in the year.

As more details are confirmed, we will be updating this page, as well as Facebook. Click here to go directly to the PuppyUp Des Moines Facebook page.

PuppyUp Des Moines has always been a family focused event for all humans and canines to enjoy!  We have raised awareness and funds, and provided education in the field of comparative oncology and the links between canine and human cancer.  

The events planned will continue our tradition of honoring and recognizing those who have survived or are battling cancer, and memorialize those whose lives have been lost to this disease.  


For the fourth year in a row, PuppyUp Des Moines is pleased to offer our participants a way to honor their loved ones by purchasing a tribute sign that will be yours to keep. Choose from, “In Memory “, or “Survivor”.

These 11″ x 14″ signs can be purchased online; click here. DEADLINE TO ORDER WILL BE ANNOUNCED LATER.

Please feel free to contact us.  We would love to hear from you! ** If you are available to volunteer for to help out with the fundraisers please register here.
