Let's put an end to canine and childhood cancers by wrapping up one gift at a time! For a $2 donation, we'll gift wrap your ornament so that it's perfectly prepped and ready for giving. Best yet, all gift wrap proceeds will go directly to the Canines-N-Kids Foundation to help find a cure.
We are excited to announce our 2020 Giving Back Campaign for this holiday season. Let's hang up canine and childhood cancer for good. For every ornament you purchase and hang on your tree we are donating $3 to Canines-N-Kids Foundation.

Every year 16,000 children and 6 million dogs are diagnosed with similar cancers. Canines-N-Kids Foundation is working to put an end to the cancers children and our canine best friends BOTH develop – devastating cancers, including bone and brain cancer, lymphoma and leukemia.

Stay tuned for additional ways we are raising funds for Canines-N-Kids Foundation this holiday season and how you can get involved.

This November, , it's important to understand the facts about Pet Cancer and Canine Cancer. Pet dogs in particular are considered a "sentinel" species as they truly live our lives, breathe our air, eat our food, drink our water, etc. As a result, our four legged best friends develop many similar cancers to those in humans, as well as a few others. Scientists believe these are likely tripped by many of the same factors that contribute to cancer in people. It will take us all working together to find more effective treatments and to put an end to canine and pet cancer! Learn more at


We're learning more each day that, as in people, pet cancer is influenced by multiple factors - lifestyle, environmental exposures, nutrition, age, genetic predisposition or sometimes, unfortunate genetic luck. is a good time to reflect on what we can do for our pets to live healthier lifestyles, be aware of predispositions, ensure we have regular exams and screenings (early detection) and more. At CnK, we're working to advance comparative oncology and translational research - involving academia, industry and other cancer organizations- to help solve the puzzle of cancer in our pets (canines) and the people who love them.

Our pups share our lives, homes and hearts. They also share many ailments, including cancer. November is - nearly 6 million pet dogs will be diagnosed in the US this year.. By bringing together the best minds in cancer research - veterinary and human- comparative oncology helps bring promising new treatments to pet dogs with cancer, and allows us also to translate what we can to help beat cancer in the humans who love them.

We work tirelessly every day with one urgent goal in mind: to accelerate breakthrough treatments for canine cancer patients that are humane, provide or improve quality of life, and ultimately benefit them in their battle against cancer. At the same time, we want to maximize the translational value of our work in canines for the benefit of pediatric cancer patients - to speed the onset of clinical trials that will ultimately help kids beat their cancer too.

Kids and canines are connected by a harsh reality...few medicines for their cancers exist and virtually no investment is being made in a cure for their cancers.
* 1 in 5 children will die from cancer
* Merely 4% of NIH budget, and near 0 pharma money goes into new cancer drugs for kids.
* Limited treatment options for canines with cancer.
* 50% of all dogs over 10 will die from cancer.

Canines-N-Kids exists to change this reality. To raise awareness, raise funds, and put an end to cancer.

$400 will fund one day of cancer research
$2,500 will fund a week of research
$10,000 covers costs for a month of research

Dogs have a higher incidence of cancer than humans/kids overall. Some pediatric cancers are rare and therefore difficult to study, but are much more common in canines. For example, osteosarcoma strikes about 25,000 dogs in the US a year, but is an orphan disease in kids (about 800 cases/year). Treating and studying canine patients with this disease will help bring new, humane treatments to them, while also helping doctors learn more about this devastating cancer for the benefit of kids with osteosarcoma.
These two incredible and precious patient populations may be best suited to help one another to find a better bath forward, and one day put an end to cancer!

We fund maximum impact research and clinical trials in comparative oncology and translational pediatric cancer research. We seek to bring canine cancer patients new, humane treatments for their cancers, while answering key questions for kids with cancer, including the fundamental biology of cancer development, metastasis, and recurrence; tumor genetics; genomics; molecular targets and signaling pathways; therapeutic responses and toxicities.

To donate to our cause, please visit:


The Canines-N-Kids Foundation is about raising awareness of the cancers kids and our beloved canines share in common, and closing the funding gap that has stood in the way of making meaningful progress. We are about collaboration and breaking down barriers that stand in the way of a breakthrough in canine and pediatric cancer. Our goal is to bring together the best and brightest in pediatric and veterinary oncology, and to work creatively and constructively with others who share in our mission to help canines and kids with cancer to beat their disease.

Just as in children, dogs spontaneously develop a range of cancers, many of them the same or similar. Pet dogs are seen as an important model for studying and treating human disease because they are live in our midst- they experience the same complicated biological, environmental, nutritional and other factors that may lead to the development of cancerous tumors as well as metastases and recurrence. Pet dogs, like humans, develop cancer despite have a functioning immune system (the cancer evades the body’s immune surveillance). And, particularly relevant for kids, a dog’s size provides a much better approximation for evaluating the dosing and effect of new cancer medicines in children than traditional mouse models do. These important connections between canines and kids afflicted with cancer can help us to find answers, and one day a cure for both.

Cancer is complex, and many of the answers to today's questions will come from the next generation of medical researchers veterinary oncologists, immunologists and genomics experts. But often, these students cannot afford to pursue extensive extra study in specialty fields like comparative oncology CNK's grants are aimed at enabling them to do so.

Dogs play with us in our yards, sleep and live in our homes, breathe the same air and eat many of the same foods. They are exposed to the same complex biological, nutritional and environmental factors that can affect our health. In fact, the genome of the dog is 84% similar to that of people. Not surprisingly, we develop many of the same diseases, including cancer.
There are several cancers that develop spontaneously both in dogs and kids including:
-bone cancer
-certain brain/central nervous system cancers (e.g. glioma, glioblastoma)
-lymph and blood cancers
And these are often different from cancers in adult humans. How these cancers develop, “behave” and progress, and even the side effects kids and canines experience from treatment, are very similar.

Certain dogs may be more susceptible than others to developing environmentally associated cancers. Knowing this may allow vets to create unique health plans for dogs to help prevent them from getting cancer

We will operate with a sense of positive urgency to ensure the development of therapies that will help canines and kids who are diagnosed with cancer, not only to help them beat their disease, but to address recurrence and live a better life during and after treatment. We will not stop until we find a cure, and we will get there…together.

Going through cancer treatment is hard enough for pediatric cancer patients and their families during normal times – but imagine receiving treatment during COVID-19.

Isolation, fear and dampened spirits are impacting thousands of children in oncology wards across the United States today.

Because of social distancing, there are stricter limits on visits from family and friends; fewer special programs for sick children are operating, and visits from beloved therapy dogs are not yet allowed in many hospitals. However, the Canine-N-Kids Foundation (CNK) has been offering a bright light to these children, in the form of special care packages provided by its Project Hearts & Tails initiative.

Project Hearts & Tails works directly with hospitals to provide support packages meant to bring comfort and hope to young cancer patients. Within each package is a copy of a beautiful children’s book written by Canines-N-Kids’ founder Ulrike Szalay, called “We’ll Get Through This Together,” as well as a black Labrador plush friend. Soon, the kits will include a red hat from the Black Dog company, and a t-shirt. The packages are designed to help Certified Child Life Specialists at the hospitals talk with sick children about the emotions they are facing.

If you would like to make a $30 donation to send a Project Hearts & Tails care package to a pediatric cancer patient – please click here:
