Helping Pets this Holiday Season

Hey pups - just wanted to bark to you about two great sites. This holiday season especially can be tough for pets in need and if you wanted to help make the season bright, a donation to either of these groups would be FURTASTIC!

The Morris Animal Foundation has launched an unprecedented $30 million effort to cure canine cancer within a dog's lifetime – the next 10 to 20 years. World–renowned veterinary scientists and cancer specialists agree that this MAF–led effort will not only save countless dogs from suffering and premature death, but should also help produce breakthroughs in the prevention, treatment, and cures of human cancers – in particular childhood cancers.

The Banfield Pet Hospital is a private veterinary practice with hospitals located in many communities across the country. Central to their mission is a commitment to providing quality, loving and wise care to Pets and their owners.

Banfield has teamed up with the Meals on Wheels Association of America (MOWAA) for a national Pet food drive called Season of Suppers. Banfield hospitals across the nation are collecting Pet food at their locations and donating it to their local MOWAA program to feed Pets of senior citizens that receive meals.

Go to your local Banfield from now until December 31 to make your donation!
