From support to care packages, help for those battling canine cancer


After losing her beloved Golden Retriever, Kali, to cancer, Laura Leah English channeled her grief into giving back. The loss of her dog inspired her to start Kali’s Wish Cancer Foundation, an organization focused on helping other dog parents navigate the devastating diagnosis of canine cancer. As the first registered charity in Canada uniquely dedicated to helping families facing pet cancer, education and support are at the heart of their mission.
