Canine Mission

The Foundation’s canine mission includes work in both health and welfare through programs ranging from clinical research support to dog park construction.

The Foundation is pragmatic in its orientation and tries to approach the question of “What is good for the dog?” without preconceptions. It has numerous open application programs in both health and welfare.
