Our long-time partner the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals (OFA) has given a generous donation to CHF. The gift will extend OFA’s support of educational grants through CHF’s Clinician-Scientist Fellowship Program and will help fund research into genetic mutations that affect a dog’s ability to break down commonly used anesthetic and chemotherapy drugs.
CHF staff are on the road – making connections with students, dog lovers, researchers and everyone involved in canine health. In March, the team attended the Student American Veterinary Medical Association Symposium in Minnesota and the Tarheel Cluster in our hometown of Raleigh, NC.
The American Veterinary Medical Foundation has information about organizations providing emergency relief and support to those affected by the war in Ukraine, including veterinary teams and the animals they care for.
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.
