Date:4/23/2010

Cancer is the number-one disease-related cause of death among dogs and cats. For the month of May, PETCO and Blue Buffalo are partnering to raise awareness and funds to fight this devastating disease. The goal this year is to raise $1,000,000 with 100 percent of the donations going to the Morris Animal Foundation to fund research and finding a cure.

Wilton, Conn., and San Diego (PRWEB) April 24, 2010 -- Cancer is the number-one disease-related cause of death among dogs and cats. For the month of May, PETCO and Blue Buffalo are partnering to raise awareness and funds to fight this devastating disease.

The 2010 goal is to raise $1 million dollars during month of May to help find a cure

Throughout Pet Cancer Awareness (PCA) month, pet parents can make donations to the cause by rounding up their in-store PETCO purchases to the next dollar at the register, or by making a donation in an amount of their choice. Blue Buffalo will also donate up to $1 for every bag of BLUE dog or cat food purchased during May.

Additionally, Saturday, May 8 is designated as Pet Cancer Awareness Day at PETCO stores throughout the nation. From 10 a.m. - 2 p.m., local veterinarians will be available to talk with pet parents about what they can do to help protect against cancer in their own pets. In addition, veterinarians will discuss the warning signs and facts about pet cancer.

"PETCO believes in prevention and early detection of pet cancer and that's why we partnered with The Blue Buffalo Pet Food Company for Pet Cancer Awareness Month," said Dr. Thomas Edling, PETCO's pet expert/veterinarian. "Taking a month to focus on this cause will help pet parents learn the warning signs of pet cancer and make them aware of the resources available to help."

PCA month will also be celebrated with the launch of PETCO's Virtual Wall for fighters and survivors of
