Educate & Empower
Since its inception, Paws4Potter - with the gracious help of local and regional communities in upstate NY - has raised over $20,000 for the National Canine Cancer Foundation alone.
Paws4Potter has hosted pet cancer awareness events with Dr Sue Cancer Vet in Watertown, NY (Hilton Garden Inn) and Verona, NY (Turning Stone Resort Casino), entitled "Live Longer, Live Well - Early Cancer Detection In Pets". It has also hosted continuing education events for veterinary professionals with Dr Sue Cancer Vet after both of the aforementioned public events.
Paws4Potter has hosted a pet cancer awareness event with Dr. Seth Glasser in Watertown, NY (Hilton Garden Inn), entitled "Cancer Can't Keep A Good Pet Down."
Paws4Potter hosts several fundraising events throughout the year, the fundraising dollars from which go to both the National Canine Cancer Foundation and Paws4Potter.
. . . for the National Canine Cancer Foundation.
. . . bringing pet cancer awareness events to the general public.
. . . from the education that their pet parents receive about pet cancer.
Paws4Potter would not be able to function without the help of several members of our local and regional communities, along with a few integral people in distant areas.
1/3 of all dogs and 1/4 of all cats will develop some form of cancer in their lifetimes. 50% of those will die from that cancer. What can you do to help reduce these statistics?
Join us at one of our education events! Take the knowledge that you gain and share it with two other people and ask them to do the same!
If you notice one of the top 10 warning signs of cancer in your pet, make sure to have him/her evaluated by your veterinarian. Hopefully, the symptoms will be indicative of something else, but it's best to have things checked out.
Consider making a donation to the National Canine Cancer Foundation (which helps to fund research grants to several canine cancer studies all over the country) or to Paws4Potter (which helps to educate the general public about pet cancer).
