RHINELANDER - The American Cancer Society and TLC Dog Training will bring a new event to the Northwoods next month. it's called bark for life.
The event will be similar to Relay for Life, but including dogs.
Bark for life promotes the healing benefits that canines offer to humans suffering from cancer.
"Dogs offer a lot of companionship to people who are sick and vice versa. We've lost dogs to cancer too, and we were there for them. So it kind of goes as one big circle," says TLC Owner and event sponsor Carol Lofquist.
The event will have something for everyone and their four legged friends to enjoy.
That includes a two mile walking course, food vendors, and dog agility demonstrations.
"It's all money raised for a very good cause. And people love their animals. And when we love our animals our animals will love us back," Lofquist says.
Bark for Life will take place on August 24 at the Rhinelander-Oneida County Airport beginning 9 a.m.
Pre-registration is $10 per dog and $15 on the day of the event.

RHINELANDER - Wild Instincts celebrated the release of BBC's "Supercharged Otters," which filmed at Wild Instincts in Rhinelander.
Saturday's viewing at Rouman Cinema in Rhinelander had a complementary showing of the episode.
The episode features otters that spent seven months with Rehabilitation Director Mark Naniot and his team.
The episode gives people a look into the life of an otter.
"Like everything else it's the web of life. Everything's all interconnected and even if it's just the pure enjoyment of watching an otter swim or catch a fish and seeing how playful they are sliding down a mudslide or sliding through the snow that alone is immeasurable really," said Naniot.
