About 2021 Nationwide Pet Cancer Awareness Walk

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 for the Nationwide® Pet Cancer Awareness Walk, October 15 - November 30, 2021.

Fundraising is easy and can be done right here! And, the walk will be held as a challenge on the WoofTrax app, allowing you to walk from anywhere at any time during the campaign.

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

  • Register and encourage others to walk with us
  • Post photos and stories of your challenge walks using #curepetcancer

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

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 the 2021 Nationwide® Pet Cancer Awareness Walk!

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.
