Rocky Mountain Pet Expo 2016
Saturday, May 21st 10 am - 6 pm
|The PuppyUp Foundation is proud to sponsor the 6th annual Rocky Mountain Pet Expo. Won't you please join us at the National Western Complex (4655 Humboldt Street) in Denver for an all-day experience for you and your dog! Attendance is FREE! Click here for more event info and schedule of events.|
There will be a Cancer Walk featured and we would like to invite you to attend. Registration for the walk is also FREE, but we encourage you to register in advance so we know how many to plan for.
Many have provided support, sponsorship, participation and the ultimate act of kindness in teaming with us to raise awareness, funds, and continue education in the study of comparative oncology, and the links between canine and human cancer. And for this, we are eternally grateful.
Your Generosity=Our Success
Because of your efforts in 2015, the PuppyUp Foundation was able to award a $96,000 grant to the University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine in Madison to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of stereotactic radiation for dogs with bone cancer (osteosarcoma, a cancer that affects dogs and children).
The foundation also awarded $100,000 to The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in collaboration with Medical Teaching Hospital at the University of California - Davis. This funding will be used to study NK Cell Therapy for dogs with osteosarcoma. Natural killer cell immunotherapy uses a subset of the dog's own immune system that is highly effective at killing cancer.

Now more than ever, we must continue the fight and support those with cancer, honor the friends we have lost, and walk for those we can help.
