Canine cancer is the #1 cause of death in dogs. Due to a lack of awareness, most dog owners do not even know what dangers are faced by their beloved companions. We at The International Canine Cancer Association are hopeful that the public can be informed about this devastating disease, and we also hope that our research into prevention and treatments will make a difference against cancer. Please take a moment to study the information on our site. If you have access to information that is not available here, please notify us immediately so that we can utilize it in our mission to inform the public.

We hope that you care about these issues as much as we do, as our organization can only be successful with the support of people like you.
