Smiling Blue Skies Walk to End Canine Cancer, Toronto’s 2nd Annual event coming up Saturday, September 28, 2013.
In an independent survey conducted by the Golden Retriever Club of America, it was determined that over sixty per cent of Goldens die from cancer. And its not just Golden Retrievers – cancer is the most frequent cause of death in dogs, period. This is a truly frightening thought. The OVC Pet Trust is a fund devoted to providing financial assistance for the advancement of health, health care, and quality of life, for companion animals. The Smiling Blue Skies Cancer Fund is just one of the funds that OVC Pet Trust at the Ontario Veterinary College, University of Guelph manages. Every dollar donated to The Smiling Blue Skies Cancer Fund supports OVC’s quest to find more and better ways to deal with and understand this terrible disease.
