Relay for Life of Shelton is kicking off its 2015 season by hosting an event designed to include the canine compan- ions of cancer survivors. The Bark for Life of Shelton is sched- uled for 10 a.m. Sept. 6. Registration begins at 9 a.m. at Loop Field, and the event includes a walk through Shelton. Participation costs $20 per dog (owners get in free) and includes purple bandan- as for all dogs. Pm~ple is the color of Re- lay for Life's logo.
