Sometimes it’s hard to see, but progress IS being made in the fight against pet cancer. At the eighth annual Morris Animal Foundation K9 Cancer Walk in Elk Grove, California, we saw living proof. Check out the interview with UC Davis vet scientists making huge advances in diagnosing, treating and one day ending pet cancer in dogs and cats.
Look Out Cancer, Here Comes Team Tripawds and UC Davis!
On October 9, Team Tripawds members from Northern California, along with Tripawds Spokespup Wyatt Ray and his humans, gathered to showcase the Tripawds community and Tripawds Foundation programs.
Blue, sunny skies kicked off the long-awaited celebration. Tripawd heroes Elly, Austin, Hannah, Wyatt and newcomers too showed off their canine core strength and balance skills.
When all was said and done, Team Tripawds, along with 350 walkers and vendors helped raise nearly $40,000 to fight cancer in dogs! Our members raised nearly $600 of that total.
All walk funds are going toward studies at Morris Animal Foundation aimed at making advances in the detection, prevention and treatment of canine cancer. Morris funds cat cancer studies as well, but this event was focused on dogs.
