Salisbury University students came out to Red Square on Tuesday in support of Relay For Life.
The event, Bark For Life, was styled as a fun, stress-relieving event in which the SU community was invited to bring their dogs and donate to cancer research.
At a $5 fee, the dog-owning participants of the event were given a Halloween-themed goody bag complete with dog treats, a Relay For Life bandana and a tennis ball.
SU junior Kennedy O'Malley was all smiles in Red Square as she detoxed from a stressful day by petting her new furry friend with her fellow peers.
Although O'Malley doesn't have a dog of her own with her at school, she was still happy she attended the event.
"This was for a great cause, and on top of it, it's always heartwarming to see how happy it not only makes other students, but also the dogs," O'Malley said. "The wagging tails were all the more reason to come out for an important cause."
The motto for the event was to "celebrate, remember and bark back against cancer."
