Shelby Farms Park – Jones Pond Pavilion

Join us at Shelby Farms Park (across from the Visitors Center) for a 1 mile walk to promote awareness of canine cancer and fundraise for cancer research to benefit both pets and people.

Since the walk is the Sunday after Easter, we are including a SPECIAL ATTRACTION… a Costume Contest with an Easter Parade aspect!
Prizes will be awarded for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd places. So, get your inner bunny on and start planning those costumes!

PLEASE NOTE: In an effort to  expedite the check-in process, we are requesting that the registration fee be paid (or raised) prior to the event. 

Entry fees* as follows:
$25 through April 15th
$30 through April 22nd
$35  April 23rd  and day of event

* all fees include entry into the Costume Contest

Costume Contest Only: $10 fee (must be pre-registered)

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.

We sincerely hope to see you there!

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:
Use subject line: Please send Warning Signs.
