Petco Love devotes $1 million in new investments to battle veterinary cancer
Marks 13th annual pet cancer campaign led by Petco Love in partnership with Blue Buffalo
Petco Love, in collaboration Blue Buffalo, is launching its 13th annual pet cancer campaign displaying its continuous commitment to supporting pets and pet owners. More than $18 million dollars has been donated to the cause to date.
"Pets are family and deserve similar lifesaving cancer treatments as those available to humans. Our goal is to make treatment accessible to more pets and their pet parents by supporting subsidized care options and research for better treatments," said Susanne Kogut, president of Petco Love, in an organizational release.1
"We are so proud of the continued growth of our university treatment funds. These funds change the lives of pets and pet parents and even veterinarian professionals, as they provide an avenue to help even more pets when costs pose barriers to treatment," she added.
Petco Love partnered with 12 funded university veterinary oncology partners, including1: Colorado State University Foundation; Cornell Veterinary College; LSU Foundation (Louisiana State University — LSU); North Carolina Veterinary Medical Foundation; The Ohio State University Foundation; Texas A&M Foundation; University of California, Davis School of Veterinary Medicine; University of Florida Foundation; University of Pennsylvania, School of Veterinary Medicine; University of Tennessee Foundation; University of Wisconsin Foundation; and, the Virginia Tech Foundation.
During this month, Blue Buffalo and Petco Love will raise awareness of the pervasiveness of veterinary cancer, the importance of early detection, and how pet owners can find support plus help others in need.1
"Fighting pet cancer has always been a key part of Blue Buffalo's mission," said Haley Perry, senior manager of consumer activation at Blue Buffalo, in the release.1
"Furry family members give so much to us. We want to support them and their pet parents through improved treatment options and funds to cover their care. Therefore, again this May, Blue Buffalo will match all donations to Petco Love up to $75,000 to help fight this deadly disease and provide lifesaving care for pets and pet families in need."
