About Greyhounds Rock FredericksburgEach of us knows someone who has lost a dog to cancer. Cancer is the leading cause of death for our canine companions. According to the Morris Foundation, up to 50% of all canines will die from cancer. Greyhounds ROCK Fredericksburg, a 501c(3) non-profit fund-raising charity, was created to raise awareness and funds to support canine cancer research, to honor the dogs that are or have been affected by this disease, and to offer encouragement and education to the people who love them.Greyhounds Rock Fredericksburg is working with researchers at Ohio State University to help find cures and provide help to area pet owners. Numerous local owners have benefited from Greyhound Rock's work with OSU's program to provide free chemotherapy to dogs in need, as well as our educational seminars on topics such as grief support, becoming a therapy dog team, and how to foster a homeless dog. Greyhounds Rock has also begun work with local firehouses to provide oxygen masks for cats & dogs, Red Cross first aid books and veterinary-led instruction on how to administer first aid to companion animals.Cancer research for the benefit of animals also has applications in human medical treatments. Doctors of veterinary medicine at Ohio State have even collaborated with doctors at Nationwide Children's Hospital. We find hope in the possibility that another animal (or even a human) will benefit from research that our support is helping to fund.Greyhounds Rock cannot succeed without donations or sponsors. Every donation to our events, or sponsorship from individuals, groups, and merchants, helps achieve the goal .... effective treatment, and an eventual cure, for canine cancer.
