John Paul Pet Supports the Pink Ribbon

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (NBCAM) and John Paul Pet believes your pet can spread the word about Breast Cancer prevention this year with a paw prints and pink ribbon John Paul Pet bandana.

You and your pet can both wear your JP Pet Bandanas to show your support for finding a cure for breast cancer at the dog park, at the mall, or even in your own neighborhood. These unique and stylish bandanas are free with the purchase of a specially-packaged trio of our Oatmeal Grooming products during September and October only.

John Paul Pet supports the NBCAM message of prevention. Since the conception of the the organization in 1985, mammography rates have more than doubled for women age 50 and older and breast cancer deaths have declined. This is exciting progress, but there are still women who do not take advantage of early detection.

  • 1. Women age 65 and older are less likely to get mammograms than younger women, even though breast cancer risk increases with age.
    2.Hispanic women have fewer mammograms than Caucasian women and African American woman.

  • 3.Women below poverty level are less likely than women at higher incomes to have had a mammogram within the past two years.
    4.Mammography use has increased for all groups except American Indians and Alaska Natives.
