2 Million Dogs Foundation is committed to discovering the common links between canine and human cancers and the causes of these cancers through comparative oncology research. Our organization will accomplish that mission in the following ways.
Education and Awareness
The field of comparative oncology is relatively new and 2 Million Dogs will educate people about its tremendous potential through a global campaign of strategic partnerships, seminars, speaking engagements, social media, events, broadcasts, and other forms of media.
Empowerment and Mobilization
Through The Puppy Up! Walk, we are building the largest pet and people cancer community in the world; from business people to artists to scientists and humanitarians, a partnership forged with the singular purpose of ridding the world of its deadliest disease.
Investment in Research
2 Million Dogs scientific objectives are: Broadening our understanding of the links between human and companion animal cancer, creating a cross institutional collaborative platform, developing new approaches to research, and funding translational cancer studies that benefit both pets and people.
We are a grassroots organization that educates the public about canine cancer and its similarities to human cancers.
Each year we put on a series of Puppy Up! Walks to help us raise funds to support cancer research that benefits both pets and people.
