The farmer's market in Wappingers continues to attract new vendors making each Sunday a different experience for the habitual patrons. This past week an organzation brought several puppies that were available for adoption. I'm not able to adopt another dog at this time but that didn't stop me from cuddling with an excited puppy for a few minutes.

Upon further inspection I noticed a flyer showing the Puppy Up Foundation. They are committed to discovering the common links between canine and human cancers and their causes through comparative oncology research.

You can find more information on this organization on their website  The puppy walk takes place in New Paltz on Sunday, September 23rd. The event is from 10am - 3pm with the walk beginning at 1pm. It will be held at Adair Vineyards in New Paltz.

This is a fundraiser to help fight cancer in both humans and dogs. You may pre-register by September 21st for $20 online.
