As part of Pet Cancer Awareness Month in November, limited-edition pet cancer awareness dog collars and magnetic paws are being made available for purchase, with proceeds benefiting the Animal Cancer Foundation and the National Canine Cancer Foundation, respectively.

The collars are tan-banded with a gold buckle and sprinkled with lavender “awareness” ribbons. The pink magnetic paws can be placed on any magnetic surface, including on cars and at home or work.

Sales of the items are part of a pet cancer awareness and education campaign by Veterinary Pet Insurance. According to VPI, cancer is the number one killer of both cats and dogs in the United States.
