our story

Our Mission

During the summer of 2012, I was  presented with devastating news.  Tate, my 4-year old Wheaten Terrier was diagnosed with Stage IV Lymphoma.  His prognosis was bleak.

Our mission is to raise awareness of canine and feline cancer while raising funds for those who cannot afford the insurmountable expenses associated with their pet's cancer treatment.  

Tate's Play Date is an event that celebrates Tate and all his warrior friends.  Come play for a purpose and experience an afternoon of fun and goodwill for pets and pet parents.
