About Us

Potter From Patrick 2 006.jpg


Paws4Potter is a small (but mighty) pet-related organization based in Jefferson County, New York.  It was created in the summer of 2016 in response to the need for pet cancer awareness in the local and regional communities of upstate New York.  In the spring of 2017, Paws4Potter became officially incorporated, and as of June 27, 2017, it achieved 501-c3 nonprofit status.

Our Mission Statement

Paws4Potter is a 501-c3 nonprofit organization whose mission is to raise awareness for pet cancer in local and regional communities, to provide people with the tools that they need to detect cancer earlier in their pets, and to help people understand that pet cancer is not necessarily a death sentence.  Paws4Potter also raises money for the National Canine Cancer Foundation through fundraisers and donations.

In the future, Paws4Potter hopes to broaden its mission statement to include communities throughout the USA.


The National Canine Cancer Foundation (NCCF) is a 501-c3 nonprofit organization based in Phoenix, AZ dedicated to education, outreach, and research with regards to canine cancer.  Its mission is to eliminate cancer as a major health issue in dogs and increase survival rates in dogs with cancer.
