Morris Animal Foundation (MAF) has launched its fifth annual Unite to Fight Animal Cancer campaign, which raises funds for research that will lead to new information about how to prevent, diagnose earlier, and treat animal cancers.
In dogs and cats, cancer accounts for nearly half of all disease-related deaths each year, with approximately 11 million new diagnoses made annually. Since 1948, MAF has funded more than 300 cancer studies—investing nearly $40 million.
“Imagine a world where all cancers are treatable and more cures possible,” said Tiffany Grunert, acting president/CEO of MAF. “This is a vicious disease that is seen in the pets we love and the wild animals we admire, and with the help of our supporters we can change that.”
MAF funding has led to numerous breakthroughs and advancements in cancer care, including:
The Blue Buffalo Foundation is once again partnering with Morris Animal Foundation in the fight against cancer, with a dollar-for-dollar gift match, up to $75,000, until the end of the campaign on May 31.
Gifts can be made and more information can be found at Unite to Fight Animal Cancer.
