November is canine cancer awareness month. Join us on November 19 for our “Bark Against Cancer” event. We will be celebrating the lives of all dogs who have struggled with cancer, while raising awareness of this terrible disease. The event will feature a presentation on our three Mackenzie dogs, Tres, Mecca, and Denver, who are currently dealing with cancer. Our guest speaker, Dr. Alana Gillhespy, will also discuss canine cancer and what to be aware of. Following our presentation, we will play bingo! Each round winner will receive one of our fantastic prizes.
Bark Against Cancer begins at 1pm. Admission is FREE for Sanctuary staff and volunteers! A suggested $5 donation for general public (new friends) Cash or check will be accepted at the event.

Thank you to everyone that braved the weather and joined us today at the Sanctuary for our Fall Open House! With such busy fall schedules it was a treat to make time to get together and spend with our Mackenzie’s family! Thank you to so many Staff, Volunteers, Adopters, Adoptees and Sponsors who came together today to have some fall fun. 🙂
It was a great turn out, with over 250 friends and many furry friends (39 past Mackenzie’s dogs and their families also attended). What a fabulous way to wrap up an awesome summer and welcome a fantastic fall with friends.
