Trooper Vet Participates in Bark For Life

Louie is all smiles for the Phoenixville Bark for Life event!

Trooper Veterinary Hospital was proud to participate in The American Cancer Society's Bark For Life this past Saturday, April 16, 2016.  The Bark for Life is an annual fundraising event honoring the life-long contributions of our Canine Caregivers.  This event provides an opportunity for people to be empowered through their canine companion partnerships and to contribute to cancer cures through the mission of the American Cancer Society.

Canine Caregivers are Canine Companions, Guide Dogs, Service Dogs, Rescue Dogs, Therapy Dogs, Police Dogs, Cancer Survivor Dogs, and Diagnostic Dogs, who with their owners, join the American Cancer Society as Relay teams. They participate to celebrate cancer survivorship, to honor people lost to cancer, and to fundraise in support of the American Cancer Society mission of eliminating cancer though research, education, advocacy and service.

Trooper Vet staff and Ambassadog Louie manned a vendor table (check Louie out in the photo above!) and met many folks during this great event!  We were proud to be named the top donor team, raising $545 to fund the fight against cancer.  All of the canine teams came together to raise over $2200! We are thrilled that we could give back to the community and help raise money to battle a disease that has touched us all in some way.
