Featured Charity: Morris Animal Foundation
By Sarah Ford on May 10, 2013
An estimated 50% of pets will die from cancer, yet 80% of pet owners know very little about this disease. Fortunately, Morris Animal Foundation has a special way of giving hope to animals and those who love them.
Take the Pledge
In honor of Pet Cancer Awareness Month in May, Blue Buffalo will donate $1 to Morris Animal Foundation for every person who watches our video—up to $25,000.
How Will Your Donation Be Used?
Morris Animal Foundation will use this generous donation to help fund critical research into preventing, treating and curing cancer and other diseases in pets and wildlife. Over our history, we’ve already invested nearly $14 million in cancer research for animals. Those studies have led to better diagnostics and treatments, but we can’t stop funding cancer research until cancer stops taking the lives of the pets we all love.
Morris Animal Foundation is currently funding 35 studies in an effort to combat this deadly disease. You can read more about our current studies on our website at www.MorrisAnimalFoundation.org.

Beyond our work to #EndPetCancer, at any given time, Morris Animal Foundation is managing about 300 animal health and welfare research studies.
