Metro Pets

Sadly, millions of people have suffered from the effects of cancer, and it is one of the most common health problems in the world. Even more tragic is that there is no cure for it right now. The only way to fight cancer is to find a cure through research.

Collars for Cures is making a difference in the lives of cancer victims. And you and your pet can help them in their cause. They offer quality collars for dogs and cats, and 50% of the proceeds go to support the research of the American Association for Cancer Research.

The collars come in five different sizes, from XS (Chihuahua) to XL (Great Dane), and only in one very distinguishing color. They are extremely durable and are made from 100% nylon, with a chrome buckle, and an embroidered white design. The collars are easily recognized worldwide as a sign of support for cancer research.

Unlike other companies who donate a small percentage of the proceeds, Collars for Cures pledge half of all profits to finding a cure. The company also offers 100% cotton t-shirts so you and your pet can display a coordinated look. Collars and t-shirts are available online at

Another product supporting cancer research, specifically the Breast Cancer Research Foundation is a new Pink version of Tru-Fit Smart Harness and the coordinating Wander Leash. The harness comes with a broad padded chest plate for extra comfort and protection and is available in 4 sizes.

This is a simple to use walking and car safety harness that provides a comfortable, secure way to travel. You can use the harness with any car seatbelt. The company will be donating 5% of profits from each Pink Tru-Fit Smart Harness and Pink Wander Leash sold. Available at all better pet stores.

Let your dog carry a message of support, quite literally! With its long, narrow shape and big toothy grin, the Loofa Breast Cancer Awareness Dog Toy is a soft, squeakable treat that will keep your four-footed friend occupied. It features the classic embroidered pink ribbon below the grin. Available in two sizes at
