Who doesn’t love their pets? Well we do too!! Frankie’s Friends is a non-profit foundation dedicated to finding cures and saving pets with cancer and other catastrophic diseases.

The Veterinary Cancer Foundation was started by Dr. Shaw in 1999 with a mission to save pets with cancer. But the reach and mission of the foundation was broader: to raise money and help pets who would otherwise suffer without proper care or be euthanized due to their families’ lack of financial resources.

In 2008, our foundation’s name was changed to Frankie’s Friends to honor the spirit and vitality of Frankie, a beautiful greyhound, cherished by the Edward DeBartolo Jr. family of Tampa, Florida. Neil has received a number of accolades, including People magazine’s “Hero in Hard Times,” and the Community Service Award by The Veterinary Medical Association of New York City, among so many others.

Find out more about Frankie’s Friends on Facebook and how you can help support this wonderful cause, Frankie’s Friends Denim and Diamond Collar Benefit Party! Here are the quick and easy Directions to NOVA 535
