Wag Love is inspired by an old festival in Nepal where all dogs are honored and thanked for their friendship and loyalty.  It's a gathering - both live and virtual - that celebrates beloved dogs in our lives.  We walk, run, hike for our best friends.  Registration fees and every dollar raised support research seeking canine cancer cures.
