After careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Canines & Cocktails Gala held in Orlando, Florida in December. In making this decision, we considered the effect that the COVID-19 pandemic may have on our guests and the impact of potential travel restrictions to and from the event. We are very disappointed that we will not be able to celebrate the many accomplishments achieved in canine health in 2020 with you in person, but we feel it is the right decision based on the information we have today. We look forward to holding another fun and exciting Canines & Cocktails Gala in 2021.
Established in 1995, the AKC Canine Health Foundation's (CHF) mission is to advance the health of all dogs and their owners by funding scientific research and supporting the dissemination of health information to prevent, treat and cure canine disease.
