There are many resources out there for pet owners interested in enrolling their dogs in cancer clinical trials. And if you’d like to help support comparative oncology research efforts, you can donate directly to the universities that are leading the charge. There are also several independent foundations that support these trials and provide information to other pet owners. Some of these groups were founded by pet owners who had such positive experiences participating in comparative research with their dogs that they decided to give back by forming charitable foundations to support future trials.
Here’s where to find them:
