Did you know that 6 million dogs and almost as many cats are diagnosed with cancer every year? It is a wicked disease that does not discriminate. That is why the Dog and Cat Cancer Fund (DCCF) is so important. They are a non-profit group dedicated to understanding, treating, and preventing canine/feline cancer. You can read the symptoms of canine cancer by reviewing our last year's post for this awesome fundraiser. Our friends at Zuke’s are doing their part to help. Zuke’s already donates a portion of each sale to the DCCF, but between May 1st and June 30th, they will give $5 for each photo their fans post on social media. Helping has never been easier! Just post a photo for your dog or cat in action and “loving life” to Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook. Be sure to follow Zuke’s on each social media platform and tag your photo with #FuelTheCure. Last year, they raised $5,000 and this year they are hoping for $10,000!
As a blogger, I am joining my friends Oz the Terrier and Sugar the Golden Retriever to help spread the news. They are co-hosting the Loving Life Contest and Fundraiser this week. Today is the last day but if you hurry, you can still take part. You can visit either of their sites for the official rules.
Today is also the Pet Parade Blog Hop! We have grown from just a few blogs parading with us to a May Day sized parade each week! Join the fun with Rascal and Rocco, Bionic Basil’s Blog, Jan’s Funny Farm, Love is being owned by a Husky, and me to celebrate. Grab our badge and hop along!
