AKC Canine Health Foundation Canine Cancer Research

Since 1995, CHF and its donors have funded over $15.6 million in canine cancer research. These 243 research grants have helped scientists study cancer at the cellular level, providing breakthroughs that allow 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 dog owners and veterinary professionals. Typically, about one quarter of CHF’s grant funding concerns various types of canine cancers.
