PuppyUp Lake Norman Walk 2021

Saturday, 11/6/2021

This past year spotlighted the profound impact our dogs have on our lives. Pet adoptions have soared, as Americans tried to fill a void with canine companionship.

Having an in-person PuppyUp Walk gives us all an opportunity to celebrate this bond we have with our companion animals, while bringing us all together as one group of people fighting the same disease.

The walk will be held on Saturday, November 6th at Daveste Vineyards from 11:30 am – 2:30 pm.

For more details on the day’s festivities, see Program Details.

This is the 9th year for PuppyUp Lake Norman, and the community surrounding this walk is an incredible group of caring, determined and motivated individuals…all involved in furthering the mission of The Puppy Up Foundation:

  • Awareness of canine cancers
  • Research that benefits both pets and people
  • Education for pet parents to help keep their pets healthy

We sincerely hope to see you there (socially distanced, if necessary).


Early Detection is key...

Cancer that’s diagnosed at an early stage, when it isn’t too large and hasn’t spread, is much more likely to be treated successfully. Treatments tend to be less aggressive and more likely to result in remission or a cure.

The Puppy Up Foundation wants you to be informed about the Early Warning Signs and how to look for Lumps & Bumps each month. See the video here for examples.

If you would like for us to send you the Warning Signs and a Lumps & Bumps diagram to analyze your dog, please email us here: info@puppyup.org.
Use subject line: Please send Early Detection Kit
