Holiday Bone Treats

Sunday, November 01, 2020


Every year during the holidays, we launch a bone cancer awareness and fundraising campaign called HOLIDAY BONE TREATS!

This campaign highlights osteosarcoma, which accounts for approximately 5% of all canine tumors, but is by far the most common bone tumor found in dogs.  It is a malignant tumor of the bone and can develop in any bone, but most often occurs in bones bordering the shoulder, wrist and knee.

Mike Holland, the founder of FETCH a Cure, faced an osteosarcoma diagnosis with his own dog, Hannah, over 10 years ago. His experiences ultimately led him to create FETCH, which works to provide accessible treatment options and information about cancer to pet families in our communities.

The “rein-dog” displays are a visual reminder that November is Pet Cancer Awareness Month; they also serve as a conversation piece and educational visual aide while clients are checking in and out at the reception desk, or they can be hand-delivered to clients checking out curbside. The wooden “rein-dogs” are in the shape of our famous mini steel pups, and they are decorated with bells and antlers to signify the festive season.

Each “rein-dog” will hold small gift bags of yummy healthy treats provided by Lily’s Barkery, a licensed small business owned and operated by one of our 2020 Companions in Crisis recipients! Our 2020 sponsorship levels are as follows:

Sponsorships include these precious “rein-dogs” to use as a display during the campaign, as well as customized treat bags with your logo and a special holiday message! Additionally, your logo will go on our Holiday Bone Treats social media posts, and your information will be included in the FETCH a Cure e-newsletter (sent to over 6,000 people).

For more information email or call (804)793-8348. If you’re ready to place your order, please complete an order form by November 9th.
