Cancer treatment is expensive–including those treatments in dogs and cats. It’s wonderful that veterinary medicine has advanced so much these days, offering treatment that, just a few years ago, wasn’t available to pets.
But that treatment comes at a price and, all too often, pet parents are forced to make difficult choices. The Dog and Cat Cancer Fund (DCCFund) helps to ease those choices, providing funding to help pay for the treatment of dogs and cats with cancer.
A portion of every sale of Zuke’s USA-made natural treats has goes to support to its Dog and Cat Cancer Fund (DCCFund). And not only does the DCCFund help pet parents in need, it also helps fund research to not only find ways to treat canine cancer but, hopefully, to one day eradicate it.
The connection wit Zuke’s and canine cancer assistance dates back to Zuke, the namesake of the company, who passed away from canine lung cancer in 2001. In memory of Zuke, a Chocolate Lab, and Oly, a Golden who passed away from canine hemangiosarcoma in 1990 at age 8, the Dog and Cat Cancer Fund was established in in 2007.
We’d love to ask for your help in spreading the word about how we can all assist the Dog and Cat Cancer Fund. Without spending a dime, here are three easy ways you can help!
