“I will be forever grateful to Dave Cubit and the Canine Knights for all the help and support they gave us!”

Our Dog First Aid Class and Children’s Event also includes a segment on early canine cancer detection. Each child that receives a dog (the first 100 registered) will follow along with the president, Dave Cubit and have a chance to play “doctor” to examine their dog for the warning signs of canine cancer. This segment is geared for all ages and is also non-graphic; the children will simply learn how to tell mom and dad that their dog may need some help. We firmly believe that the younger generation is our future and hope to inspire them to be veterinarians, scientists, and educacated and responsible pet owners when they grow up. We’ve seen many, many folks who think they can beat the incredible odds they’re against. Have a look below and see some of the hard facts.
