Morris Animal Foundation’s Canine Cancer Campaign funds health research to prevent, treat and ultimately cure cancer in dogs. The goals are:

1) Provide new treatments for dogs currently suffering from cancer
2) Establish a high-quality tumor sample bank that can be used by cancer researchers
3) Develop prevention strategies so this disease might one day be eliminated or, at the very least, drastically reduced in incidence and severity
4) Train new researchers who will work to find preventions, treatments and the ultimate cures

After the Walk
