Featured Non-Profit: Chase Away K9 Cancer

Giving back to the community is one of Houndstooth's core values. We've learned from personal experience how wonderful the pet community can be when you're in need. So it's important to us to help whenever and wherever possible.

Since 2006, we've volunteered for Chase Away K9 Cancer (a cause near and dear to our hearts) and even founded a fun run (the Chase Away 5K) to help raise money and awareness for canine cancer. We've also volunteered for international rescue groups like Galgos del Sol, as well as local pet rescues. When we can, we donate items to local shelters — and throughout the year as raffle/auction item contributions.

And once a month, we shine the light on a different animal or pet charity, to educate the Houndstooth community on important resources and rescues you might not otherwise know about —but will be glad you do now!

Founded in 2006 by Cera Reusser, Chase Away K9 Cancer—a grassroots campaign held within the National Canine Cancer Foundationbrings together people and dogs from all walks of life to eventually defeat this horrible disease. 

Since its inception, Chase Away has helped fund 21 studies to date. With support coming one dollar at a time—through dock diving events, local pop-up events across the US, and merchandise sales—every donation makes a difference.

Chase Away K9 Cancer also aims to build a community where people can find comfort and understanding and where no one will say "it’s just a dog."
