I'm glad that more people are aware of this devastating disease in animals...I lost Ginger, my Malamute/Cocker Spaniel mix to it & my neighbor recently lost her Golden Retiever, Lady, to cancer too...

I think it is great that they did a walk to help animal cancer. I would like to be in a walk like this to honor my late Ashley that lost her battle with cancer.
Thanks Zootoo for this news & website info.

I think it would be great to see these walks happening in more places. It would be a great way to honor Ashley and I would like to do the same in honor of my brother's dog and my friend's dog who were lost to cancer.

Prevention is always the best, with any disease or condition. I have heard a lot more about cancer treatment in animals than prevention. The word on the definitely needs to get out.

Awesome! I'm glad they had such a great turnout for this event. Nice to see some "celebrities" out there as well.

This is awsome but I wish they could find a cure for Kennel cough and feline lukeimia. There is a cat at rescued paws no one wants to adopt him because he has some type of kitty disease he is perfectly healthy it can not be passed to other animals or people. I don't remember what it is called but when it hits him he will be gone there is no cure for it. And his name is Mcloud if any one is intrested in adopting him he is so sweet also there is Braveheart who has a neralogical disorder and can lead a normal life he just walks funny. Please look at these kitties on petfinder.

VPI has a vested interest in finding a cure for cancer. Cancer treatment is probably one of the costliest insurance payouts! But, of course, everyone would "win" if cancer could be prevented.
