When a pet gets cancer, it’s devastating.
Blue Buffalo® and Petco are partnering together for the fifth annual
Pet Cancer Awareness Month in May to raise money to fight this
terrible disease. Our goal is to raise $2 million, and with your help
we can do it.
How you can help:
The foundations that benefit.
Your generous donation last year helped us reach our goal of raising $1.5 million in the fight against pet cancer!
Thanks to you, we were able to support several incredible studies and organizations including:
If cancer is detected early it can be treated more effectively, so it’s important to check your pet regularly for the 10 Early Warning Signs as recommended by the Veterinary Cancer Society.
If your pet has any of these early warning signs, you should take him or her to your veterinarian as soon as possible for a more complete examination. In addition, you should keep your pet away from environmental toxins like lawn fertilizers and surface and rug cleaners that have warning labels relative to children and pets. Many veterinarians see a link between environmental toxins and cancer.
All donations collected will be distributed through Blue Buffalo Cancer Research Foundation and the Petco Foundation to various pet cancer research and assistance groups around the country.
The Blue Buffalo Foundation for Cancer Research (B.B.F.C.R.), through the Pet Cancer Awareness Program, raises money to provide grants to leading institutions studying ways to combat and cure pet cancer. The B.B.F.C.R., Petco, and the Petco Foundation are proud to partner with many great organizations including the Morris Animal Foundation, the world's largest nonprofit foundation dedicated to funding research studies to protect, treat and cure animals.

Together we have raised $5.2 million to date and are cosponsors of the Golden Retriever Lifetime Study and the 5-5-5 Initiative.
