When a pet gets cancer, it’s devastating.

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:

  • The Morris Animal Foundation’s 5-5-5 Initiative – a five-year study responsible for clinical trials and treatments for osteosarcoma, the most common form of bone cancer in dogs, which also affects children.
  • Emma’s Foundation for Canine Cancer – an organization that focuses on helping financially limited pet parents cover the costs of cancer treatment.
  • National Canine Cancer Foundation – a non profit corporation that distributes grants to researchers and clinics working on a cure for pet cancer.
Early detection is key.

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.

  • 1. Abnormal, persistent swelling
  • 2. Sores that do not heal
  • 3. Loss of weight
  • 4. Loss of appetite
  • 5. Bleeding or discharge from any body opening
  • 6. Offensive odor
  • 7. Difficulty eating or swallowing
  • 8. Hesitation to exercise or loss of stamina
  • 9. Persistent lameness or stiffness
  • 10. Difficulty breathing, urinating or defecating

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.

How the money is distributed.

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.
