Animal Cancer Foundation
Veterinary oncologists and medical researchers studying pet animal cancer are perhaps the single most untapped source of relevant clinical data in the fight against cancer in people. Dogs, cats and humans are the only species to get spontaneously occurring cancer in the millions of cases per year. Unlike laboratory based mouse and rat studies, these comparative oncology clinical trials are conducted by the pet’s own veterinarian, an emphasis is placed on protocols that are designed to maximize both the quantity and quality of the pet’s life, and meaningful results for both pets and people can be obtained in a one to two year period.
Tony La Russa’s Animal Rescue Foundation
Mission: To create a world where every loving dog and cat has a home, where every lonely person has a companion animal, and where children learn to care.Tony La Russa’s Animal Rescue Foundation has a very interesting story. Tony, then Manager of the Oakland A’s came across a stray during a game between Oakland Athletics and the New York Yankees. Tony captured the stray, and looked to place it in a local shelter, but found that there was not a single no-kill shelter in the East Bay region of the San Francisco Bay Area. That event inspired Tony and his wife Elaine to create the ARF to find homes for abandoned animals and help control pet overpopulation through spaying & neutering programs.
