2022 Pet Cancer Awareness Month supporting Animal Cancer Foundation
Animal Cancer Foundation

Why Participate?

Cancer is a societal issue that affects almost all of us – it’s the leading cause of premature death in the world. But cancer treatments are still falling behind – research is too slow and too expensive to create truly effective treatments.

1 in 4 dogs and 1 in 5 cats will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetimes! That’s millions of cherished pets across the United States that need our help.

A diagnosis of cancer in your pet is NOT a death sentence, because researchers are understanding more about pet cancer and its relationship to similar cancers in people, and more treatment is being developed for our pets and made available to veterinary oncologists.

Help us fund this urgently needed research by fundraising for November's Pet Cancer Awareness Month!

How Your Support Makes a Difference

Comparative oncology research can make a real difference in the development of breakthroughs for cancer, but not without a commitment to getting funds into the hands of researchers at an early stage.

Animal Cancer Foundation is a national 501c3 charity exclusively focused on funding this cutting – edge comparative oncology research that has the potential to be life-saving for people and pets all over the United States.

Your donation helps bring the future of cancer treatments within reach. Your support fast-tracks us towards a world with better cancer treatments for all.

Thanks to our generous sponsors

November is Pet Cancer Awareness Month.

To help us spread pet cancer awareness and raise money for a good cause—comparative oncology research, the study of naturally occurring cancers in pets and people—we’re inviting you to fundraise during Pet Cancer Awareness Month, November 1 - November 30, 2022.

Fundraising is easy and can be done right here! 

In addition to fundraising, you and your pet can lift up others fighting cancer:

  • Register to walk virtually with us in the Nationwide® Pet Cancer Awareness Walk
  • Post photos and stories of your challenge walks using #curepetcancer
  • Invite friends to join your team (to walk or to fundraise) using the button above

Let’s bring the future of cancer treatments within reach.
