Hope for Hounds is a nonprofit organization founded by Janet Schaffer in 2005. Janet started Hope for Hounds after one of her favorite hounds died of osteosarcoma, the most common cancer found in large-breed dogs including Greyhounds and Great Danes. All of the proceeds go to fund Dr. Guillermo Couto’s canine oncology research at Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio.

From now until March 31, 2008, 2 Hounds Design will double their donation to $10 for each collar sold, $6 for each leash, $5 per headband, and $3 for each key fob sold. View press release

According to Animal Disease Diagnostic Laboratory at Purdue University, “Approximately 80-85% of all canine skeletal tumors are diagnosed as osteosarcomas (OSA). Canine OSA occurs most often in dogs 7-9 years of age. Large breed dogs are at 150 times greater risk of OSA. Highly aggressive, over 90% of all clinically significant OSAs have already micrometastasized by the time of diagnosis.”
