If you'd like to support the initiative that share leading canine science to you live for free, you can get a SPARCS membership, or make a donation (as big or little amount as you like!) from the 'donate' tab that will be on-screen during the broadcast. SPARCS aims to help fund future research in canine science through a series of grants, and this will only be possible with the support of those watching. If every person watching donated $5, it would count.

Here we are! In Phoenix! Cacti! Dogs! Science! We have all!
