Wild Blue Dogs / Arne and Bentley
According to Wild Blue’s research, one in three dogs will get cancer, six million will be diagnosed in 2020 and most will die within a year. Wild Blue’s need-based treatment program offers grants to people lacking the resources to pay for their pet’s cancer treatment. Its fundraising activities include two week-long dog camps
at Lake Tahoe plus “yappy hour”’ events and other fun get-togethers throughout the year.
The field of research being supported is comparative oncology
, which is focused on the link between human cancer and cancer in dogs and other animal species. Close to home or a road-trip away, you and your best fur buddy can help support the cause while having a lot of fun at the same time. Nice to know: Wild Blue
operates the only not-for profit dog camp in the country, a factoid that adds to the give-back vibe.
