      Brief Bio: The AKC Canine Health Foundation (CHF) is the largest nonprofit funder of health research focused solely on dogs. Donations from individual dog lovers, dog clubs, foundations and corporations are invested in a diverse portfolio of innovative canine health research grants that aim to find better treatments, more accurate diagnoses, and an improved understanding of the mechanism that cause disease in dogs.

      About Us:

      Annual health polls are administered to AKC Parent Clubs, dog owners, breeders, and veterinarians in order to gather information about canine health priorities. Investigators are encouraged to submit research grant proposals based on this feedback.

       

      Grants submitted to CHF for funding consideration are carefully reviewed by expert peer reviewers as well as by CHF’s Scientific Review Committee, a panel of veterinarians, medical doctors, researchers, and canine health experts. Grants are reviewed for scientific merit, impact in the field of study, and the significance to dogs and their people. Through defined research program areas, CHF considers areas of unmet need and immediate opportunity, while looking to apply recent advancements in science and technology to canine health research. This stringent review process allows CHF to be confident our research is doing the most good for the most dogs, and making the best use of our donors’ contributions.
