Rhodesian Ridgeback match stationary 2022  Matching Funds for Canine Cancer Research

Thanks to the generosity of our donors, the Rhodesian Ridgeback Club of the United States (RRCUS) (via its RRDAF and Nancy Krupa Fund), and the Rhodesian Ridgeback Charitable Foundation (RRCF), $60,000 has been raised to support CHF-funded canine cancer research. RRCUS and RRCF matched $30,000 in gifts received during October and November as part of a three-year, $90,000 pledge.

Thanks also to the American Boxer Charitable Foundation (ABCF) for matching all donations in support of CHF-funded cancer research on Giving Tuesday (November 29). Our donors are amazing!
