Unite to Fight Pet Cancer with Morris Animal Foundation

Take a walk for health and help fight canine cancer.Unite To Fight

What’s better than taking a walk on a beautiful day with your favorite four-legged friend? When that walk can raise money to fight pet cancer! On May 22, grab a leash and join Morris Animal Foundation’s third annual Unite to Fight Pet Cancer Virtual Walk.

Cancer is a leading cause of death in older dogs and cats. Each year, nearly 12 million dogs and cats are diagnosed with cancer. Despite tremendous improvement in our ability to diagnose and treat pet cancers, we still have a long way to go. Morris Animal Foundation has been a leader in pet cancer research since the foundation funded its first pet cancer study in 1962.

 The foundation’s Virtual Walk helps in the fight against pet cancer, and also reminds you of all the benefits of walking your dog daily, including:

 Keeps your pet healthy, agile and limber (and you, too!)

  • Helps with weight control.
  • Aids the digestive system.
  • Prevents destructive behavior (a tired pup is less likely to find ways to entertain himself!).
  • Helps calm your pet.
  • Promotes a strong bond with your pet.

 Whether you want to walk solo, on a team, or with friends and family, register for our Virtual Walk to help Morris Animal Foundation increase awareness and raise money to help support pet cancer research. Your Virtual Walk can take place “virtually” anywhere you are. You also can ask friends and family to donate to your virtual team. Every dollar that you raise, including your registration fee, will be matched up to $50,000.

 Take a walk today! You’ll make a difference not only in your pet’s life, but in the lives of the dogs and cats diagnosed with cancer each year. It doesn’t matter how far or fast you walk, your registration fee adds to the money we can spend on cancer research, bringing us closer to saving more animal lives from pet cancer.
