AKC Canine Health Foundation Canine Cancer Research

Since 1995 CHF has funded over $12 million in canine cancer research. These 205 research grants have provided breakthroughs in treatment options and diagnosis and have helped scientists study cancer at the cellular level, allowing veterinarians to diagnose cancer earlier and treat it more effectively. CHF-funded research also has a One Health impact, extending beyond dogs with an application to human cancer diagnosis and treatment.

Canine cancer research is a major concern of our supporters. Currently, about one third of CHF’s grant funding concerns various types of canine cancers.
