Is committed to discovering the common links between canine and human cancers and the causes of these cancers through comparative oncology research. The field of comparative oncology is relatively new and 2 Million Dogs will educate people about its tremendous potential through a global campaign of strategic partnerships, seminars, speaking engagements, social media, events, broadcasts, and other forms of media.
The story of 2 Million Dogs began with a man and his two dogs who embarked on a walk from Austin, TX to Boston, MA inspired by the loss of his Great Pyrenees to cancer. Some of you have heard the story of Hudson, Murphy, and Luke Robinson.
They walked from town to town sharing Malcolm’s story and educating people about cancer in dogs and as they built a nationwide grassroots movement, Mr. Robinson had a vision: 2,000,000 dogs walking simultaneously all across the United States for cancer. If 2 dogs could walk over 2,000 miles surely it was possible!
And that’s how the 2 Million Dogs Foundation was born and the legacy that started out with just a man who lost his beloved dog continues.
November 6th, 2011 The 2 Million Dog March Continues! This year there will be 30 Puppy Up! Walks across the country.
