Help a dog or cat with cancer this December @ Four Muddy Paws by making a donation at the register.
Did you know that over 50% of adult dogs will develop cancer in their lifetimes?Â Many cancers can be treated successfully. YOU can help make the difference!
The goal of the Dog and Cat Cancer Fund is to help dogs and cats with cancer get the treatment they deserve.Â They use the majority of their funds helping qualified individuals and families afford cancer care for their dog or cat through treatment grants. They fund research grants into the next generation of life saving treatments. They promote prevention by raising awareness and understanding the risk factors underlying canine and feline cancer.
