PetSafe Makes Community Happy and Healthy for Pets
Annual K9 Cancer Walk to Take Place Sunday, September 23
Knoxville has been dubbed one of the pet-friendliest cities in the nation, in part thanks to the pet-loving team at PetSafe. They have taken the lead in helping to make sure that pets are respected citizens and that their health and well-being are a top priority in the community. To help drive this effort, earlier this month they hosted the first-ever dog-friendly black-tie gala in Tennessee. The event raised funds and awareness for Morris Animal Foundation. The Black Tie and Tails Gala raised more than $30,000 for health research that will help the animals we love.

The PetSafe team will continue their fundraising efforts Sunday, September 23, at the annual PetSafe K9 Cancer Walk at the Cove at Concord Park. They are expecting about 1,000 dog owners and their canine best friends. Registration is now open for this event, and all are encouraged to attend. Laurie Macnair, vice president of Radio Systems Corporation, will be leading the PetSafe team again this year. After watching two of her dogs lose battles to cancer and one benefit from the findings of a Morris Animal Foundation–funded study, Macnair wanted to help the Foundation cure canine cancer, and she made that commitment on both a professional and a personal level.
“Morris Animal Foundation would like to thank Laurie and the team at PetSafe for helping pets live longer, healthier lives,” said Jeremy Kelley, director of corporate partnerships at Morris Animal Foundation. “With their help we are able fund science that will improve veterinary medicine and transform the world into a better place for animals.”
