"According to the ASPCA, 60% of all dogs over the age of six will be diagnosed with some type of cancer in their lifetime. About six million dogs are diagnosed with cancer each year in the United States. According to the National Cancer Institute, dogs have 35 times as much skin cancer as do humans, 4 times as many breast tumors, 8 times as much bone cancers, and twice as high an incidence of leukemia. Cancer is the number one killer in dogs over the age of two. At this time, there is no cure for systemic cancer. The Bark and Bowl provides direct donation toward specific grants that target canine cancer research."
