Did you know that one in four dogs dies of cancer? For cats, it’s one in eight.
It’s heartbreaking for pet lovers – but there is some amazing work being done at the Ontario Veterinary College and the work being done there is contributing toward better cancer care for people, since dogs develop many of the same cancers that we do.
Today, the OVC launches its ‘Keep Cancer on a Leash’ campaign, sponsored by Purina, to raise awareness (and fundraising) for this important cause.
We’d love your support in spreading awareness of this important cause on your site! Check out this must-see music video (“We Could Be Heroes”) performed by all-canine cast in support of pet cancer treatment and research as it really helps show the importance of this initiative. For every dollar donated, Purina will match up to $125,000 in individual donations to www.pettrust.ca
