Welcome to PuppyUp Nashville 2018!

Edwin Warner Park
Saturday, October 27th
10:30 am – 3:00 pm

We have rescheduled the Nashville PuppyUp Walk to Saturday, October 27th. We appreciate everyone’s patience and understanding.

The 1-mile walk will take place around the park to promote awareness of canine cancer and fundraise for cancer research to benefit both pets and people.

PuppyUp Nashville 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, bid on the silent auction, watch K-9 demonstrations from the Special Operations Division (canine section) of the Metro-Nashville Police Department, enjoy music, food by Smokin’ Butzz and No Baked and fun! The Walk is right before Halloween, so we decided to add a fun Dog Costume Contest for all the furbabies who attend the Walk. The costume contest categories are owner/pet look-a-like, doggie diva, pack pick (group costumes & pups) and most original. So dress up your pets, yourself, your teams and come on out and join the fun! Costume contest starts at 11:30 am right before the Walk.

And speaking of music, we are thrilled to announce Puppy Jam, a celebration of the Nashville music scene, with acoustic performances by local artists.

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