"The passion that moves us forward is from
experiencing what Cancer really does to the ones we love.
We are driven because there is a hole in our soul
where once was the love of our dog."
Gary D. Nice


Canine Cancer affects one out of every three dogs.  Of those, over half of them will die of cancer. The National Canine Cancer Foundation is asking for your help to fund important research grants that are working towards improving those statistics. Through a major project funded by the National Institute of Health, the mapping of the genome sequence of the dog has been complete. Knowing the mapping of every gene in the dog, gives researchers an advantage not yet achieved in humans.

We're closer to a cure, now's the time to beat this cancer!

Do Spayed and Neutered Dogs Get Cancer More Often?

- Fri, 27 Feb 2015 16:12:15 +0000

Where I live, in America, it’s taken for granted that responsible owners spay or neuter their dogs.
