Help Fight Cancer in Dogs & Cats

together, we’ve invested $15 million in the fight against pet cancer

Donate online or at your local Petco store May 4 – May 26 to help treat and find a cure for the #1 disease-related killer of dogs and cats. Your gift will help with the costs of pet cancer treatment, provide life-saving surgeries, continue groundbreaking research, and fund clinical trials for new treatments.

Your Donation Saves Lives

When you donate to the Pet Cancer Awareness campaign, you support clinical and university studies researching treatments and a cure and you fund organizations that help cover treatment costs for families who couldn’t otherwise afford care.

Early Detection

If cancer is detected early it can be treated more effectively, so it’s important to check your pet regularly for the 10 Warning Signs as recommended by the Veterinary Cancer Society.

How Blue Buffalo helps power this campaign

When it comes to our dogs and cats Blue Buffalo and Petco share the same philosophy – they’re not just pets, they’re family.

This belief coupled with a passion for fighting pet cancer led to the start of the Pet Cancer Awareness partnership in 2010 and together, we have raised more than $15 million to further research for a cure and provide subsidized pet cancer treatment.
