What is it?
The scope of this project is to meet and photograph 366 dogs in 2012 and feature one each day on Facebook, Pinterest, YouTube and the Bailey & Banjo blog. When meeting people and their pets, Julie hopes to raise awareness of how prevalent Canine Cancer is and provide a card detailing how they can check their dog monthly for any unusual signs. Julie does a bit of work with foster groups, and when foster dogs are available, they will become the Dog-A-Day dog for that day, which hopefully will help them get adopted faster!
How did it start?
The Dog-A-Day for Canine Cancer project was started in 2012 to help raise awareness and funds for this horrible disease. Julie wanted a way to get out from behind her computer, and get out into the world to meet people and their pets. After the first few days she realized the audience she would have, and wanted to do something bigger with her project. It eventually morphed into what it is today and she could not be more thrilled to give back in this way. The goal is to spread the word about this project, raise money to help a person in need, as well as research to help find a cure. We would like to make a one-a-day calendar or a big thick coffee table book (interested in talking with publishers!) at year end to help raise money for Canine Cancer.
Who does it benefit?
A portion of the net proceeds from all things sold from the Dog-A-Day project will be donated to:
1. The Lick. Slobber. Drool. Scholarship Fund. This scholarship will be awarded annually, to one persons vet clinic, who needs financial assistance for cancer related treatments for their dog.
2. The Chase Away K9 Cancer Fund within the National Canine Cancer Foundation.
