Mission Statement

Our non profit organization, The Perseus Foundation (http://perseusfoundation.org) was established fourteen years ago in memory of Perseus Magic, a canine companion who succumbed to cancer. Through the years, it has inspired others to establish organizations that also seek to either 1) provide financial assistance to pet owners who could not afford treatment otherwise, 2) raise greater awareness of comparative oncology, 3) raise funds for research to benefit animals, as ultimately, this will also benefit human oncology, 4) become powerhouses of information.

2013 promises to be exciting as we launch our new initiatives to raise funds and create an even bigger awareness to the importance of treating our animal companions with cancer.

PawtoHeart will be the first 24/7 Spanish and English hotline for pet owners!

Perseus and the Arts will be an unique initiative where the performing arts will fuse with the world of science!
