What It’s All About, Ralphie?

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.
