Stay informed of the latest progress in canine health research.
We need your support to fund research that helps dogs live longer, healthier lives.
The AKC Canine Health Foundation Heritage Society honors donors who have made a commitment to the Foundation through a planned gift. Heritage Society members secure the future health of their beloved breeds and advance the mission of the Foundation so that all dogs live longer, healthier lives.
If you are thinking of either updating or creating your estate plans, be sure your legacy honors your best friend. We are here to help you make a planned gift to secure the future health of your breed.
When you decide you are ready to make a planned gift you should work with an attorney or a financial planner to make the best decision for your situation. We are happy to answer questions about our work and the types of planned gifts.
