Canine cancer affects 1 in 4 dogs, and half of all dogs over ten years old. Fortunately, in recent years, veterinary scientists have made tremendous research strides—recent studies have led to new research tools, better diagnostics, and improved chemotherapy treatments. But there is more work to be done. That's why The Orvis Company partners with Morris Animal Foundation, a nonprofit organization that invests in animal health science, to support canine cancer research and improve the health of all dogs.
What's Being Done
Since 2009, Orvis and our customers have raised more than $1 million to help fund canine cancer research. The Morris Animal Foundation, the global leader in supporting scientific research that advances veterinary medicine, has used this funding to advance early cancer-detection tests, to implement safer and more effective chemotherapy protocols, and to develop a tumor tissue bank for common canine cancers. To date, Morris has funded 200 canine cancer studies at 28 colleges and universities. The Canine Lifetime Health Project and the Golden Retriever Lifetime Study are among their current veterinary initiatives.
