NCCF MISSION = EDUCATION, OUTREACH AND RESEARCH
Our funds are used in eliminating cancer as a major health problem in dogs through education, outreach and research to save lives though finding cures, better treatments, more accurate cost effective diagnostic methods in dealing with cancer and diminishing dogs suffering from cancer.
A report was given out this year, 2015 that said breast cancer is no longer the #1 killer of women. This was accomplished through education, outreach, encouraging mammograms, self-examination information and research. It can take years for research to translate from the laboratory to a FDA approved drug or treatment. It is educating, informing and reaching out during those same years that was the key in lowering the number of women dying of breast cancer. That is why, the National Canine Cancer Foundation, in addtion to funding canine cancer research puts such an emphasis and allocates much of our funds we receive into education and outreach to all 25,000,000 plus dog owners.
We are happy to say that we have approved to spend $382,994.72 in 2015 and $308,055 in 2016 in funding research grants. That will be $691,049 spent on research grants. Also we will spend another $1M over that same period on raising awareness and reaching out to dog owners on how to be proactive in increasing the survival rate of dogs with canine cancer.
