Unfortunately, many greyhound lovers are all too familiar with the devastating impacts of canine cancer — especially osteosarcoma, or bone cancer. Because of this, many adopters are passionate about helping organizations committed to cancer research and working to find solutions and/or a cure for canine cancer. GPA-WI is coordinating a volunteer team of humans and greyhounds to walk in Madison’s PuppyUp Walk on June 24.

About PuppyUp
The PuppyUp Walk will raise money for the PuppyUp Foundation to support its mission of comparative oncology research in canines and humans. Since the inaugural PuppyUp Madison walk in 2014, the Madison community has provided unprecedented support to help find a cure for cancer in canine and human companions, and has helped to raise over $500,000 for the study of comparative oncology.

PuppyUp Madison has made resounding strides to help fund research to help find a cure — and the 5th annual PuppyUp Madison walk will take place in June!
