1 in 3 Dogs will get cancer.
6 Million dogs will be diagnosed this year.
Without treatment, most will die within the year.
Wild Blue Dogs wants to help dogs with cancer and their owners. Together with the dogs owners and veterinarians, we want to find a way to cure dogs, help manage their symptoms and side effects, extend their life span, and lead the best life possible for as long as possible.
Our need-based Treatment program offers grants to people who's dogs have cancer, but lack the resources to pay for necessary treatment. California Residents and adjacent communities can apply for a grant here. Once the request has been reviewed grant recipients will be referred to a local Wild Blue Dogs Oncologist for treatment. Wild Blue Dogs will provide payment for all cancer related services.
Our fundraising activities are truly Play With A Purpose, and include a week-long dog camp in Lake Tahoe and a series of Yappy Hour events and get-together's that are fun for dogs and their owners. Wild Blue Dogs and a team of volunteers create a variety of activities for dog lovers and their pooches. From the great outdoors, to strutting your mutt, to tall cool drinks in beautiful surroundings, you and your dog can enjoy time together surrounded by like minded friends, neighbors and their dogs. These events will help us raise money for treating dogs with cancer as well as help us take the next step forward in canine-cancer research.
The field of research we will be supporting is Comparative-Oncology, one of the newest and fastest growing fields of cancer research. The National Cancer Institute (NCI) believes so strongly in this vision that the NCI Comparative Oncology Program was created. Pfizer is maintaining an entire library of canine tissue samples and several clinical trials including targeted delivery therapy in treatment of tumors are currently underway.
