Even if you're not in Atlanta, you can join us in the fight against cancer. Here's how!
For Atlanta folks
In Atlanta, you can join the Puppy Up! walk to help raise funds for cancer research. The walk is organized by 2 Million Dogs, a national nonprofit organization that funds comparative oncology research benefiting both pets and people.
Preregistration by October 30 is $20 per person; free for kids 14 and under. Kids must be accompanied by an adult. Registration the day of the walk is $25 per person. Participants may bring up to two dogs each. All dogs must be four months or older, up to date on vaccinations and must be on a 6-foot or shorter leash (no retractable leashes). Water for dogs and waste bags will be provided.
For folks outside of Atlanta area
Please consider making a donation on our fundraising page. Rocco and I will be walking in memory of Cosmo Havanese who lost his battle with lung cancer late last year. Remember, no donation is too small (or too large!). We are thankful for anything our pals can do to help in the fight against canine cancers.
You can also check here for a walk in your area.
Some recent 2 Million Dogs projects
More recently, 2 Million Dogs contributed $20,000 to fund a study on osteosarcoma (bone cancer) at MIT and Harvard’s Broad Institute, which is studying eleven breeds disproportionately affected by osteosarcoma.
2 Million Dogs is also providing $80,000 to Animal Medical Center of New York to study transitional cell carcinoma (TCC), the most common type of bladder cancer veterinarians diagnose, and a difficult cancer to treat.
Please help us help fight cancers in canines and people too!
