A night out at the ballpark helped raise money in the fight against canine cancer. Bark in the Park took place on Jun 10 at the Eau Claire Express baseball game, sponsored by dog training school emBARK.
WEAU’s Danielle Wagner and one of her dogs led the dog parade around the field at Carson Park before the ball game got underway.
All proceeds from dog ticket sales go to the National Canine Cancer Foundation.
Approximately one in four dogs will develop cancer in their lifetime, that’s according to the Animal Cancer Foundation.
“Research happening right now around canine cancer, and UW-Madison is kind of collaborating with a couple of the universities developing a vaccine that they’re trialing right now. So I think there’s some really cool, hopeful things out there for canine cancer research that would help our dogs live as long as they possibly can, which would be awesome,” said Heather Mishefske with emBARK.
