Love Animals? Support Animal Research.

(whaaat!?!) Is it possible to do both? If someone you know is dying of cancer, yes. If a pet animal is suffering from a rare disease, yes. And if you work in research, of course! (More about that later.) But if you’re on the fence, or haven’t thought about it, please click here.

Research With Dogs Benefits People and Pets

The close relationship between dogs and people may pre-date recorded history. One of the most significant results of our partnership with dogs has been their contribution to our understanding of diseases, treatment, prevention, and cures. Dogs and people get many of the same diseases because we live in the same environment, breathe the same air, walk the same sidewalks and yards. What we can glean from studying dogs in medical research often yields treatments and cures that help both humans and animals.

“All advances in medicine have an underlying basis in biomedical research. Animal research is done with great care and is done with special concern for the ethical treatment of the animals. The importance of medical research lies in the fact that new knowledge in medicine and innovative development is going to take place only when medical research is done.”

Dr. Michael E. DeBakey, Jr. (Legendary Heart Surgeon and Inventor)
