Brown Dog Foundation was founded on October 16, 2006 in memory of Chocolate Chip, a chocolate labrador retriever that touched many hearts in his short, ten-year life. Chocolate Chip was 4 1/2 years old when his first family took him to the Johnson City, TN pound to be euthanized. It seems he had a mast cell tumor and most likely, they didn’t have the money to treat him. Brown Dog Foundation was founded by Carol Smock and others as a 501c3 public charity that provides funding to families who find themselves in similar situations – a sick pet that would likely respond to treatment, but due to an unforeseen circumstance, there is not enough money immediately available to make it happen. Her hope is that knowing this foundation exists, dog-owners will have their dogs tested for cancer more frequently.
