Sierra-Nevada Bottorff Canine Cancer Foundation was created to help raise awareness for canine cancer, off-set the high costs of treatments, and to provide funding for canine cancer research in memory of Sierra-Nevada Bottorff.
 ... is to help eradicate canine cancer along with building awareness that is a serious disease both in humans and our beloved canine children. That it takes proper nutrition, exercise, regular veterinary check-ups and our eyes to watch them closely. With the help of our veterinarians we hope to give you the best information to keep your canine child in top health and disease free. It is our hope that we can raise enough funds for research to find a cure and in the process, qualify patients for our financial assistance.

Sierra-Nevada was an 8 year old cocker spaniel, born with a tremendous under bite so she always had a smile on her face and became the light of our lives with her amazing personality. She had a heart as big as the planet, never met a stranger and had the unique ability to make anyone smile. She was diagnosed with lymphosarcoma November 15, 2009 and lost the fight December 29, 2009. May she rest in peace and forever in our hearts. Because of her, our fight begins to end canine cancer.

2nd Annual Canine Cancer Walk

Check out this video from our friends at Pet Pals TV covering our 2nd Annual Canine Cancer Walk. (Our segment starts at the 10:25 mark.)

The 2nd Annual “Paws 4 Hope Now” Canine Cancer Walk started off of bit on the chilly side, but great walk weather for our fur kids. The sun was out and we had a grand time with supporters and vendors. We were blessed to have some of our favorite local celebrities, Patty Spitler , Paul Poteet and of course the famous Louie along with nationally known Nico SwanGarris the Dogo Argentino who was rescued out of Los Angeles and his mom, Bridgette. Nico by the way is fighting four different cancers at this writing and we are wishing him and his family the very best, hoping he beats these cancers the same as he beat the cancer he had in Los Angeles prior to coming to Indiana.

We had a wonderful day at Forest Park with all the fur kids and pet owners. Our major sponsors, Blue Buffalo, Pet Supplies Plus and Tails Pet Media are incredible and we thank you from the bottom of our paws for your support. Several new and all of our vendors were there supporting our mission to help us find better treatments and cures for canine cancer. We couldn’t do this without each and every one of you.  

Again we are constantly reminding everyone to please be good pet parents and learn the 10 early warning signs. As pet owners, we need to be in tune with our pets to know when they aren’t feeling well and how important annual veterinary checkups are. 

Thank you to all that attended and look forward to seeing you next October 6, 2012 at our 3rd Annual “Paws 4 Hope Now” Canine Cancer Walk. 

Have a Pawrific Year!
