The lead singer of Cheap Trick is asking Northeast Ohioans to join the 12 Million Dog March against pet cancer.
Robin Zander, proud owner of Buddha, a French bulldog, and Daisy, a bichon frise, will be in Cleveland Tuesday, June 19, with his band and Aerosmith.
Zander’s tour bus will be decked out with the 12 Million Dog March logo and website, 12milliondogmarch.com.
He’s promoting the nonprofit effort to raise money for families who need help paying for their pets’ cancer treatments.
“About 12 million pets are diagnosed with cancer each year,” he said from his Florida home.
I knew that cancer was common in dogs, but was surprised to hear that the number was so high. Apparently 1 in 3 dogs suffer from some form of cancer.
