Wag Love Life is inspired by a centuries-old Nepalese festival in which village dogs are honored and thanked for their friendship and loyalty.

This year, you're invited to honor this tradition by taking your best friend on a walk, a run, or a hike and joining others online at a virtual get-together.

It may partly be due to their temperament and genetic makeup, but there are proven techniques for helping dogs become calmer.  Vicki Draper , an author and animal healing expert, will share five simple calming techniques and important acupressure locations so you and your dog can enjoy greater harmony and tranquility in daily life.

I've never done fundraising before. Do I have to create a campaign page?

A page describing our cause is automatically created when you register, so you can share it with your friends if you'd like. Using the page is optional, but anything you can do to get the word out will be much appreciated and definitely help our dogs.

Will you have a memorial wall again?

This year the memorial wall has been modified a bit. It will be called the "Wall of Heroes". The Wall of Heroes is similar to the memorial wall and will honor dogs that have passed away from cancer and will also honor ones that are currently fighting cancer.
