The Canines-N-Kids Foundation is committed to finding a cure to the devastating cancers that canines and children face in common.
We fund the most promising, humane research and clinical trials to treat canine cancer patients, while answering critical questions that will accelerate a cure for children battling these same cancers.
With your help we can make a difference.

Arlene Weintraub, Forbes and Fierce Biotech writer and author of a book on Comparative Oncology (Heal), fills out the CBS story with additional texture in her piece "What 'Sunday Morning' Didn't Say About How Animals Aid Cancer Research", detailing advances in cancer medicine that are already attributable to learnings from canine cancer patients. https://www.forbes.com/sites/arleneweintraub/2017/03/12/what-sunday-morning-didnt-say-about-how-animals-aid-cancer-research/#32704e643c96

We are more like our dogs than we know, Dogs have physiologic and genetic similarities to people, and also develop similar diseases, including cancer and other diseases. Our ability to better understand cancer in dogs, can help humans, and [particularly kids with cancers like osteosarcoma.
