Join Pawsitive Memories  at the 2011 Puppy UP Walk San Antonio this Sunday, November 6!

Location: McAllister Park
13102 Jones-Maltsberger
1:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.

2 Million Dogs 2 Miles Puppy Up! Walk is a fundraising event that supports our mission which is committed to discovering the common links between canine and human cancers and their causes through comparative oncology research via:

Education and Awareness
Empowerment and Mobilization
Investment in Research

The Puppy Up! Walk began with a promise to raise awareness of canine caner one mile, one city and one person at a time. Luke Robinson with his two dogs walked 2000 miles from Austin to Boston to fulfill the promise he made to his dog Malcolm who died from this horrible disease. Their journey ended on June 19, 2010, and just a few weeks later Luke’s traveling companion Murphy was diagnosed with Nasal Cancer.

Puppy Up! Walks on November 6th are being planned across America. The funds raised from these events will be used to fund canine cancer and comparative oncology research,particularly focusing on the causal relationship between infections, immune response, and cancer.

Sign up to walk for this pawsome cause, or donate to the cause via the Pawsitive Memories Team or just come and cheer us on!

And don’t forget, if you or your pet has known cancer, you can send pictures of pets or humans touched by cancer for the Memorial Wall.

Join us with your dog and explore this wonderful park.  There will be vendors, music, contests(do you look like you dog?), hot dog sales, door prizes, and other surprises.

This is the newest dog park in the San Antonio area.  It is divided into two parks, one for dogs under 30 pounds and one for the larger dogs in the family.  When they get thirsty, they will have access to several watering stations.  For the humans, there are even concrete walkways wide enough to accommodate wheelchairs and scooters.
