Fighting cost barriers
Petco Love, in collaboration with its campaign partner Blue Buffalo, granted the Animal Cancer Care and Research Center in Roanoke, Virginia $75,000 to provide financial assistance to pet owners who may not be able to pay for some or all of the cancer diagnostic tests and treatment for their dogs and cats.
“Pets are family and deserve similar lifesaving cancer treatments as those available to humans. Our goal is to make treatment accessible to more pets and their pet parents by supporting subsidized care options and research for better treatments,” said Susanne Kogut, president of Petco Love. “We are so proud of the continued growth of our university treatment funds. These funds change the lives of pets and pet parents and even veterinarian professionals, as they provide an avenue to help even more pets when costs pose barriers to treatment.”
