Memphis based 2 Million Dogs NAMED A FINALIST IN
TOYOTA’S 2012 100 CARS FOR GOOD PROGRAM Vote on June 20th
Memphis, TN – June 20, 2012 – Memphis based 2 Million Dogs has been selected as one of 500 nonprofit finalists in Toyota’s 100 Cars for Good program, a major philanthropic initiative in which the automaker is giving 100 cars to 100 non-profits over the course of 100 days.
For 100 days 100 Cars for Good will profile five finalists at www.100carsforgood.com. Individual members of the public will be able to vote for which ever nonprofit they think can do the most good with a new vehicle. The nonprofit with the most votes at the end of each day will win one of six Toyota models. Runners-up will each receive a $1,000 cash grant from Toyota.
2 Million Dogs will be up for consideration on June 20th from 10:00am to 11:59pm EDT.
“Everyone at 2 Million Dogs is thrilled to have been selected as a finalist for the 2012 100 Cars for Good
program,” said Ginger Morgan, Executive Director 2 Million Dogs “We’re grateful for this incredible opportunity to share our mission of finding the common links between cancer in pets and people. A car donated by Toyota will not only enable us visit the cities where we have nationwide Walks, attend conferences, fund more cancer research, but also help us educate people about the early warning signs of cancer. Many lives can be saved by early detection and proper health care.
We hope everyone will help us spread the word now and, of course, will make time to visit www.100carsforgood.com on June 20th to vote for us.
“At Toyota, we appreciate what a significant impact a new car can have for nonprofits nationwide,” noted Michael Rouse, vice president of philanthropy for Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A. “Toyota has donated more than half a billion dollars to nonprofits across the U.S. over the past 20 years, and 100 Cars for Good allows us to expand that commitment to local communities in important new ways. The 500 finalists are an extraordinary group, and we look forward to the public learning more about them.”
100 Cars for Good is the first initiative to directly engage the public to determine how Toyota’s philanthropic donations are awarded.

About 2 Million Dogs
2 Million Dogs Foundation is committed to discovering the common links between cancer in pets and people and the causes of these cancers through comparative oncology research. We will accomplish our mission in the following ways. Education and Awareness: The field of comparative oncology is new and 2 Million Dogs educates people about its potential through seminars, speaking engagements, social media, events, and other forms of media. Empowerment and Mobilization: Through our nationwide Puppy Up! Walks, we are building the largest pet and people cancer community in the world; a partnership forged with the singular purpose of ridding the world of its deadliest disease.
2 Million Dogs scientific objectives are: Broadening our understanding of the links between cancer in pets and people, creating a cross institutional collaborative platform, developing new approaches to research, and funding cancer studies that benefit both pets and people.
Comparative oncology is important and necessary if we dare to dream of a world where cancer is not one of the top killers of our children, our parents, and our pets.
