Cancer Treatment Grants
Here is a fabulous company that provides grants for cancer treatment.
Zuke's, the maker of natural pet treats located in Durango, Colorado, pledges a percentage of its profits to The Dog and Cat Cancer Fund which offers grants to owners of pets with cancer who might not otherwise be able to afford treatment. The criteria include the pet's prognosis and the owner's financial need.
The company was named after a chocolate Labrador Retriever belonging to the company founder and CEO Patrick Meiering, who co-founded the fund in 2007 with his brother, Christopher.
In 2010 they donated $40,000. So far, grants have gone to more than 70 families of dogs and cats with cancer.
This is wonderful! Thank you Zuke's.
