The folks at Blue Buffalo Company created the Pet Cancer Awareness Program (PCA) in 2003 with three important goals in mind:
Cancer is the #1 disease-related killer of our dogs and cats. By generating greater awareness of the early warning signs we're helping pet parents take the first steps toward protecting their furry family members.
As with almost anything, information is power. The more pet parents know about how to minimize the cancer risk to their pets, and what to do if their dog or cat does contract cancer, the more they’re empowered to help.
Research is expensive. Pet Cancer Awareness helps fund universities and clinics that study the causes, prevention and treatment of canine and feline cancer. We also raise funds to support organizations that help needy families cover costly pet cancer treatments they otherwise couldn’t afford.
With your help, it’s our hope that we can one day find a cure for this devastating disease, and every year we’re getting closer. With the help of our partners at Petco, Blue Buffalo (formerly Blue Buffalo Foundation) and the Petco Foundation have become the #1 contributors to pet cancer research.
