Colorado Mammoth host Animal Lovers' Night and support CSU's Animal Cancer Center April 16

April 8, 2010

On Friday, April 16, it's going to be a zoo inside the Colorado Mammoth game as the Pepsi Center in Denver transforms into an animal house with pets available for adoption, fly dogs, and "The Mammoth of All Pets" contest finals at halftime. To make the evening even more special for animal lovers, a portion of the ticket price will benefit Colorado State University's Animal Cancer Center.

One in four dogs and one in five cats will develop cancer

One in four dogs and one in five cats will develop cancer in their lifetime. Research conducted at the Animal Cancer Center also directly benefits research to help humans with cancer. In fact, several of the clinical trials at the center are in partnership with the Children’s Oncology Group.

The Animal Cancer Center offers the latest tests and treatments for pets with cancer including surgery, chemotherapy and radiation therapy. The center boasts equipment and technology that is unparalleled in any veterinary hospital in the world.
