General Canine Health Research Grants
Through the General Canine Health Research Program Area, the AKC Canine Health Foundation (CHF) will support basic and clinical research into those diseases not covered by specific research program areas including obesity. The mission of the AKC Canine Health Foundation (CHF) is to advance the health of all dogs and their owners by funding sound scientific research and supporting the dissemination of health information to prevent, treat and cure canine disease. CHF supports a One Health model as a critical tool to achieving this vision with a multi-disciplinary approach to addressing the health needs of all dogs and their people.
