May is Pet Cancer Awareness Month at Petco

Blue Buffalo and the Petco Foundation are partnering this month (May) for the 6th Annual Pet Cancer Awareness Month.

The collaboration is dedicated to raising money for pet cancer research and helping those affected by this disease, the number one disease- related cause of death in both dogs and cats. This May, the program is focusing in urging parents to learn about the causes of pet cancer and its warning signs and symptoms. As early detection is key, pet parents must know the basics of preventative care and be able to recognize the ten pet cancer warning signs. 

Through May 31, for each bag of Blue Buffalo dog or cat food purchased at Petco or Unleashed by Petco, $1 will be donated to universities and clinics across the country that support pet cancer research and prevention. Donations may also be made at the register in Petco stores, or at 

Last year, the program was able to raise over $2.4 million.
