Bark for Life brings lures new crowd


Dozens of dog owners came out to Howard Park for the annual Bark for Life event Saturday.

The program is in partnership with Relay for Life, but The American Cancer Society was hoping to target a different audience. 

"Reason why we do this is we are trying to reach a different population of people who can't come to our relay because you can't bring your pets unless they're a service pet. So this gets the other population and their dogs and owners to come out and participate," says Patti Reinhardt, who is the Special Activities Chair. 

Dog owners who braved the elements were treated to several activities and plenty of music including Baha Men's "who let the dogs out."
