Because children also experience the devastating effects of canine cancer on a dear playmate, Junior Associate Memberships have been created in order to allow children to become involved in our organization. Associate Members over the age of 18 will receive periodic emails pertaining to the organization while the Junior Associate Members do not. For annual membership dues of $15.00, Junior Associate Members will receive a Canine Cancer Awareness bracelet and have their names proudly listed here on our web site.

We believe that every print leaves a lasting impression. If you are interested in a Junior Associate Membership for your child, sibling, niece or nephew, please click on the paw print.
