Pets Best Insurance has pledged $1 million to the Morris Animal Foundation's Canine Cancer Campaign. In addition to the monetary pledge, Pets Best will collaborate with MAF on programs to educate pet owners about cancer in dogs.
The MAF launched the large-scale, $30 million campaign in April with the goal of curing cancer in dogs within the equivalent of a dog's lifetime of 10 to 20 years (see JAVMA, May 1, 2007). Pets Best is the second $1 million contributor to the campaign, following Pfizer Animal Health.
Dr. Jack Stephens, founder of Pets Best, said, "All of us at Pets Best are honored to support the Morris Animal Foundation. ... In addition to our pledge to help find a cure for canine cancer, Pets Best plans to increase the awareness of cancer treatment options and fund more pets receiving life-saving treatments until a cure can be found."
