Today is #GivingTuesday, an international day of giving. We hope that during this holiday season you will consider making a gift to support the AKC Canine Health Foundation to help all dogs live longer, healthier lives.
This year, the AKC Canine Health Foundation celebrates our 20anniversary. Two generations of dogs have already benefited from your support of and commitment to canine health. Advances in veterinary medicine are providing better care options and more accurate diagnoses for both common and complex health issues.
As we look toward the future, your gift to CHF is just as
important as ever. By donating and continuing your commitment to canine health,
you help build on the important scientific developments in veterinary medicine and
biomedical science, impacting the dogs you love today and the dogs you will
love in the future.
A lot has changed in 20 years, but like you, our commitment
to canine health remains the same.
Wishing you a safe, happy and healthy holiday season!
