In 2019, the American Kennel Club matched donations to CHF’s Canine Cancer Research Initiative with an equal donation to CHF for canine health research, up to $250,000. Thanks to the generosity of our donors, we've met the match! We thank you and the AKC for supporting research that will improve the health of dogs.

There is still an opportunity to double your donation to hemangiosarcoma research thanks to the American German Shepherd Dog Charitable Foundation.
