Canine cancer—half of all dogs will develop cancer and 1 in 4 will die from it. Fortunately, in recent years, veterinary scientists have made tremendous strides in the area of canine cancer research. Recent studies have led to new tools for scientists studying canine cancer, better diagnostics, and improved chemotherapy treatments. But there is much more work to be done. That's why The Orvis Company has partnered with Morris Animal Foundation, a nonprofit organization that invests in animal health science, to support canine cancer research and improve the health of dogs.
What's Being Done
As of January 2015, Orvis and our customers have raised more than $1 million to help fund canine cancer research. Morris Animal Foundation—the global leader in supporting scientific research that advances veterinary medicine—has used these funds to develop early cancer-detection tests, safer and more effective chemotherapy protocols for dogs, and other important research. To aid researchers and continue this important work, Morris funding assisted in developing a tumor tissue bank for common canine cancers. They have helped fund 200 canine cancer studies at 28 colleges and universities. Going forward, Morris is also committed to funding the Canine Lifetime Health Project and the groundbreaking Golden Retriever Lifetime Study.
Your continued support will help create a brighter future for dogs.
