Dog Wash for Cancer
John Paul teams up with NCCF to Wash Away Canine Cancer

I remember when I found out that one in three dogs will be affected by cancer, and half of those cases are fatal. I was at an agility trial in New Jersey and a representative from the National Canine Cancer Foundation was in attendance.  During a break in competition, someone asked everyone to raise their hand if they knew a dog who had been affected by cancer. I was astonished when almost everyone in the room had their hand up.

Since then, the National Canine Cancer Foundation (NCCF) has been one of my favorite organizations. This month NCCF has teamed up with John Paul Pet to "Wash Away Canine Cancer." What’s better than helping out a good cause, while making sure your crew is squeaky clean? 

For a minimum $5 donation, you’ll get a dog wash packet that includes John Paul Pet shampoo, a pink “We are the Cure” window decal, a can of Halo’s Spot’s Stew, and a 30 day free trial of Trupanion Pet Insurance. On top of that, for every packet sold, FreeKibble.com will donate a meal of Halo Spot’s Stew to shelter dogs.

Visit the Wash Away Canine Cancer web site to order your packet and upload a picture of your newly clean pet.
