Our work makes a global impact
Morris Animal Foundation is a global leader in supporting scientific research that advances veterinary medicine. Since our founding, we’ve invested more than $70 million toward more than 2,000 studies that have improved the health and quality of life for dogs, cats, horses and wildlife in more than 100 countries on all seven continents.
These studies have led to better preventions, diagnostic tools, treatment protocols and even cures for what ails the world’s animals. Some of these breakthroughs have become industry gold standards and are used in every veterinary practice in the country.
At any given time, Morris Animal Foundation is managing about 300 animal health and welfare research studies at the world’s most respected research institutions, colleges of veterinary medicine and zoos. Each year, we also fund about 30 veterinary student scholar projects.
Here are some of the significant health advances that have occurred for animals because of our funding.
