" I join Wag Love and raise funds every year in honor of our Gussie"



What's Wag Love 2023?

Wag Love brings together a community of animal lovers passionate about taking positive steps to find cancer cures for our beloved pets.  The donations support life-saving research for safer and more effective cancer treatments for dogs (and cats).   

How can I participate and get involved?

Register as a live or a virtual participant.  Create a personalized page and set a goal.  Reach out to your family, friends and colleagues to spread the word about the need for research to help dogs with cancer.  We will also be inviting you to live Zoom/Youtube gatherings as well.  There will also be some awesome prizes for top fundraisers and contest winners.

Where is the in-person gathering?

The live event will be on Sunday May 7 at Marymoor Park in Redmond WA.  (Near the Velodrome and the Climbing Wall, approximately 0.7 miles from the western entrance.)  

Can dogs come to the in-person event?

We welcome all friendly pups.   All pups must remain on leash at all times. Noone in heat. If you're uncertain how your pup will be around other dogs, please leave him at home.  We'd like all participating pups to be comfortable around other pups and people.

Can children participate?

Absolutely!  Children and youth under 19 can join for free.  No registration needed.  

How does it work for virtual participants?

Set a fundraising goal. Choose an activity you like such as a walk, 5k run, or a hike.  We will be sending T-shirts and bandanas in the mail.  We'd love it if you could share any photos by emailing us or using #waglove5k  You'll be an important member of the community, passionate about helping more dogs.   

What's the best way to help with fundraising?

A page describing our cause is automatically created for you when you register.  You can customize it, set your fundraising goal, and share your story with your friends. You can also use Facebook or Instagram to do fundraising too and email us the amount you raised so we can add to your fundraising page..  If you have any questions, please email

Will you have a Memorial Wall?

Yes, we will have a  wall and we will also have an online page honoring beloved pets.  If you have a pet you'd like to honor, please use this form before May 1 to upload your photos and message.


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 in the US - about 3 times more than people!  Thanks to your support, a new promising therapy is now available in Seattle as part of a clinical evaluation.  Here's a recent news coverage about this trial and more details can be found here. Other studies are trying to improve the efficacy of immunotherapy.  Some of the treatments have made it possible to reverse metastasis for some pups, and for other pups to avoid leg amputation.  

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


Canine Cancer Alliance, a 501c3 foundation, hosts Wag Love 5K to increase awareness and raise funds to 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 action.

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

Thank you wonderful sponsors!
