Morris Animal Foundation invests in science that advances veterinary medicine for companion animals, horses and wildlife. According to their recent press release and blog post dated April 16, 2014, the Foundation has launched the “Unite to Fight Pet Cancer Campaign” to help invest in cancer preventions and treatments for animals.

The Foundation has gained the support of Jonathan Goldsmith, the actor who portrays "The Most Interesting Man in the World" and The Blue Buffalo Foundation for Cancer Research. As part of this campaign, Blue Buffalo will match all donations made to Morris Animal Foundation up to $50,000 through the end of June.

Cancer affects the lives of many pet owners. The news that a beloved pet has cancer can be shocking and heartbreaking. The Veterinary Cancer Society has published a list of frequently asked questions to help pet owners navigate a very stressful and confusing time of their life with the help of their own family veterinarian and support team.

Often people turn to giving to others as a way to manage the stress in their lives brought on by this dreaded disease. The Morris Foundation is giving people from all over the world an opportunity to help by participating in the Unite to Fight Virtual Pet Cancer Walk on Sunday, June 22, 2014.

Morris Animal Foundation is a nonprofit organization that has been funding pet cancer research since 1962. Learn more about their work to help animals on their website.
