Animal Cancer Foundation

Uniting Pet & Human Research for a Cure®

Our Story


Animal Cancer Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to finding novel treatment therapies and eventual cures for cancer by funding research in and increasing public awareness of comparative oncology, the study of naturally occurring cancers in pets and people to benefit both. Founded by Gerald S. Post, DVM, MEM, Diplomate ACVIM (Oncology) in October 1999, the organization's board of directors and scientific advisory council provide expert governance. ACF Comparative Oncology Grant Awards focus on investigations that expand current or create novel research models with an emphasis on near-term veterinary and human patient benefit and/or results that justify more significant funding from government or other biomedical research organizations to expedite treatment to pet and human patients.
