Where does the money from registration and donations go?

The funds support research studies seeking cures for dog cancer.  Cancer strikes 6 million dogs annually just in the US - about 3 times more than people!  Learn about research studies supported by your donation here.

If you have any questions, please contact us at  We'd love to hear from you!

We are grateful to Two Hounds and a Cat Pet Photography and Sunny Martinez and other talented volunteers for the photos.


Canine Cancer Alliance, a 501c3 foundation, hosts Wag Love 5K to increase awareness and support research for finding dog cancer cures. The event is inspired by an ancient festival in Nepal, a special day where all dogs are honored and thanked for their loyalty and friendship. 

Turning heartbreak into needed change.

Cancer is the number one cause of death for furry family members.  Registration fees and donations support studies led by veterinarians and scientists, seeking effective treatments for our beloved pets.
