Join us for a fun-filled day for pups and their families while supporting the NECT Cancer Fund of DKH.

The unconditional love and compassion that canine companions provide creates a bond that can be transformative for those fighting cancer. They serve as a beacon of hope and provide comfort throughout the cancer treatment process.

Canines for Cancer Care is a fundraising event celebrating this companionship in support of the NECT Cancer Fund of DKH. Join us for a fun-filled day as we honor the lifelong contribution of canine caregivers, celebrate survivors and those battling cancer, and memorialize loved ones lost to this disease.

Activities include “Wag this Way” laps around the course, an agility demo, games and contests. Exhibits include crafters and vendors featuring pet products
and services, food vendors, and more!

Your support of Canines for Cancer Care helps to provide financial assistance to residents of Northeast Connecticut who need resources to obtain cancer services and treatment, and who otherwise may not have the financial resources to obtain needed medical attention.
