Program areas at MAF

Animal health studies: the Foundation funds researchers around the world who are solving critical health problems in animals, including dogs, cats, horses, llamas, alpacas and wildlife. Our work is helping researchers in the field find new diagnostics, treatments and cures for diseases and other health concerns for animals around the world, including many endangered species.
Program awareness: Morris Animal Foundation's mission is to bridge science and resources to advance the health of animals. Raising awareness about the Foundation's programs and impact is a critical component to fulfilling our mission. The Foundation's website provides a valuable resource for supporters, including a blog that highlights organizational and study successes, campaigns and donor/partner stories. The website also is used to promote retention for the organization's golden retriever lifetime study, the largest and longest study ever undertaken in the united states to understand cancer in dogs. The Foundation's "unite to fight pet cancer" campaign includes webinars, downloadable information and articles to help pet owners learn more about how pets develop cancer and to raise awareness about cancer in pets. The organization also provides Animal health information through an extensive direct response program to donors, which includes direct mail, a quarterly print newsletter, an email newsletter program and educational webinars.
