To our PuppyUp Madison Community:

In light of COVID-19 and increased public health concerns regarding large public gatherings, PuppyUp Madison has taken steps to prioritize the health and safety of the community, our sponsors, vendors, volunteers and committee members by making the decision to reschedule the 2020 PuppyUp Madison Walk to Sunday, October 11th.

We greatly appreciate your continued support to The Puppy Up Foundation, and especially PuppyUp Madison for the past six years. Without your support, we would accomplish nothing.

Please continue to take care of yourselves and your family. We will be looking forward to October, and being able to congregate with you all again. If you have already registered for this year’s walk, be assured that your registration, and any donations you have raised will remain on your fundraising page. All Team Totals are still in place.

You will not need to re-register.

We will be updating our Facebook page often.

Stay safe! 


You have been amazing for the past six years, in coming together to make PuppyUp Madison the #1 Walk in the country! Let’s get ready to DO. IT. AGAIN!

Welcome to PuppyUp Madison 2020!

The Puppy Up Foundation and the Madison Planning Committee are so pleased to invite you to join us for the 7th Annual PuppyUp Madison Walk.  Join us again at McKee Farms for a 2 mile walk to promote awareness of canine cancer and fundraise for cancer research to benefit both pets and people.

PuppyUp Madison is a family focused event for all humans and canines to enjoy!  This heartwarming and energizing event raises awareness, funds and provides education in the field of comparative oncology and the links between canine and human cancer.  It is a day to honor and recognize those who have survived or are battling cancer, and memorialize those whose lives have been lost to this disease. Meet our canine and human heroes, visit our sponsors and vendors, enjoy music, food and fun!

With the success of last year, PuppyUp Madison has now contributed over $630,000.00 to the Puppy Up Foundation, to continue to fund much needed grants to help find a cure.  A true benchmark and testament to the community in which we live, and the strength of the human/canine bond.

Please feel free to contact us. We would love to hear from you!
