If you have been around MoscatoMom long, you know that I am a huge animal lover. If you ask me, no home is complete without a handful of fur babies and a measurable layer of pet hair that has to be vacuumed daily. So when I heard about this amazing fundraiser helping fur babies in need, I knew I had to help spread the word.
Zuke’s, a natural pet treat company comprised of the most passionate pet lovers you’ll ever meet, is hosting a fundraising initiative for pets with cancer this May and June.After his beloved chocolate Labrador Zuke passed away from cancer, Zuke’s founder Patrick Meiering (shown below) helped start the DCCFund in 2007. The non-profit organization is dedicated to supporting cancer prevention and providing pet parents in need with financial assistance for cancer-related treatments and care. Zuke’s donates a portion of every treat sold to the DCCFund and with its customers’ help have raised over $250,000. For everyone who tags a photo of their dog in action and loving life with both #FueltheCure and @ZukesPets, Zuke’s will donate $5 to The Dog and Cat Cancer Fund (DCCFund) Their goal is to raise $10,000 and most importantly raise awareness about canine and feline cancer.
The DCCFund provides financial assistance to pet parents who can’t afford treatment for their beloved dog or cat. Zuke’s support of the DCCFund is just one way they are committed to helping dogs and cats stay healthy and active. Zuke’s donates a portion of every treat sold to the DCCFund and with your help have raised over $250,000.
