Animal Cancer Foundation
About the Animal Cancer Foundation
In June 1998, Dr. Gerald S. Post, a distinguished veterinary oncologist, began to channel funding he received from grateful pet owners into projects that would benefit animals in the future. In 1999, as the number and size of gifts increased, he formalized his vision by creating the Animal Cancer Foundation so that many hundreds of thousands of animals would benefit.
As the foundation has evolved, so also has the collaboration of veterinary and human oncologists, as they work to discover more effective and less toxic treatments that will decrease cancer-related mortality in people and pets.
Leading the Way in Comparative Oncology
Today, ACF develops and supports research that advances the prevention and treatment of cancer for people and pets. Specifically, our endeavors focus on furthering research in comparative oncology, which is the study of cancers that occur similarly in both pets and humans. In this way, ACF is committed to advancing the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of such cancers, and becoming a preeminent resource in educating the public and scientific community.
