Giving Tuesday!

It’s our favorite day of the holiday season here at The Marvelous Mutts HQ – it’s Giving Tuesday!

This year we wanted to do something special for a canine charity that is near and dear to our hearts, The Chase Away K9 Cancer Fund (a division of the National Canine Cancer Foundation).

Canine Cancer simply sucks, and unfortunately it affects way too many of us pet parents. Our darling Clementine, the original Marvelous Mutt, and the dog that will adorn our logo for eternity, passed from canine cancer in 2014. When cancer took Cera Reusser’s beloved Chase in 2006, Cera determined to do something amazing in her memory, and Chase Away K9 Cancer was born. Chase Away K9 Cancer has brought an awareness to canine cancer, especially in our dog sport community, that didn’t exist before, and has raised over a million dollars to help improve the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of this terrible disease. As Cera says:

“It’s amazing where a broken heart can take you. Chase continues to share her love with so many and I know she is here by my side on this journey we now call Chase Away K9 Cancer.”

In honor of Clementine, we are giving $500 to Chase Away K9 Cancer on this Giving Tuesday. We hope you will visit their website and learn more about the amazing work they are doing, and consider making a donation.

Note: For the past couple of years, we have had a friendly competition among our favorite rescue groups in the country, many of which we have adopted our Marvelous Mutts from. (Kansas City Pet Project won in 2014 and Perfect Pets Rescue won in 2015, each earning our Giving Tuesday donation of $500). There are many other worthy rescue groups, and we will likely return to our competition format in future years.
