The Petco Foundation & Canine Cancer

The Petco Foundation

Thanks to our wonderful partnership with the Petco Foundation, and our own Armani/Schaffer Cancer Fund, we will be able to help hundreds of dogs fight canine cancer!

Cancer is not only frightening, treatment is expensive. The Mosby Foundation hopes to help offset that cost to qualifying applicants. We are so very honored to partner with the Petco Foundation and offer financial support to dogs in need of critical cancer care.

The Petco Foundation has demonstrated again and again its extraordinary commitment to reach out to local communities and help pets in need. On their website, the Petco Foundation says, “We support organizations who have the biggest hearts and save the most lives.”

However, without the Petco Foundation’s huge heart, our ability to help dogs in need would be vastly limited. Thank you, Petco Foundation for allowing us to continue to do this important work!

About Canine Cancer

Every year, an estimated 6,000,000 dogs are diagnosed with some form of cancer. That’s over 16,000 dogs every day! For many of these dogs, cancer will act much like it does in their human companions. And, it will spread to the same organs as their human friends. Any guardian who has had to deal with canine cancer knows how heartbreaking it is. In fact, canine cancer is the leading cause of death in dogs over the age of 10. Learn more about the 10 Warning Signs of Pet Cancer.

Treatment Options for Canine Cancer

There are various treatment options for canine cancer, depending on the type and stage of cancer. Check out this resource guide for a list of other organizations that might be able to assist with the costs associated with pet cancer.

There are several determining factors The Mosby Foundation considers when granting funding for each dog: 

  1. Age of the dog
  2. Type of cancer
  3. Stage level
  4. Prognosis
  5. Amount of funding we have available at any given time
  6. Financial situation of the pet parent and fundraising work performed by them to raise funds

This first step of our financial aid process is to fill out a pre-qualification application.
