Dog Lovers Pay It Forward with “Fuel the Love – Fuel the Cure™”
Zuke’s® Social Media Campaign Raises over $5000 to Support The Dog and Cat Cancer Fund
Are you aware of The Dog & Cat Cancer Fund?
The Dog and Cat Cancer Fund is dedicated to understanding, treating and preventing canine and feline cancer.
The nonprofit organization helps make cancer treatment affordable for qualified individuals and families through treatment grants. It also funds research grants for the next generation of life-saving treatments and promotes prevention by raising awareness and understanding of the risk factors underlying canine and feline cancer.
After helping its first dog in 2007, the organization has directly helped more than 250 animals. The Dog and Cat Cancer Fund is supported by donations from individuals, corporations and government grants.
This summer 2014 –Zuke’s, manufacturer of premium dog and cat treats, was pleased to announce that their annual “Fuel the Love – Fuel the Cure” campaign to support The Dog and Cat Cancer Fund (DCCFund) raised over $5000 for the organization. Through the campaign, Zuke’s was able to increase awareness of canine cancer and promote The Dog and Cat Cancer Fund as a resource for families confronted with a cancer diagnosis.
The campaign, aimed at celebrating dogs and their love of life, Zuke’s invited fans to share inspiring photos and videos of their pups in action. For every person who posted and tagged their photo or video with #FuelTheLove, Zuke’s contributed $5 to The Dog and Cat Cancer Fund. The campaign generated nearly 900 photo and video entries, raising more than $5000 for the Fund.
With six million dogs and a similar number of cats diagnosed with cancer each year in the United States, this donation will help the DCCFund, a non-profit organization dedicated to,providing much-needed financial assistance and valuable information to pet guardians whose dogs and cats are coping with cancer.
