Dogs are part of our families, but our “best friends” can get sick, just like us. Morris Animal Foundation launched the Canine Cancer Campaign to help scientists worldwide prevent, treat and, ultimately, cure cancer in dogs.
The K9 Cancer Walk program raises funds and awareness for the Canine Cancer Campaign, which funds research that will develop prevention strategies, test new treatments, establish tools for cancer researchers and train new scientists specializing in cancer research.
Participating in one of these walks is a great way to memorialize a beloved dog lost to cancer and create a brighter tomorrow for your current companion. By supporting the K9 Cancer Walk program, volunteers and participants help their best friends live longer, healthier lives.
Half of all dogs will be affected by cancer—but together, we can beat this disease.
All K9 Cancer Walks are dog and family friendly.
