Your Impact – Spring 2023

For almost 75 years, Morris Animal Foundation has been a global leader in funding studies to advance animal health. With the help of generous donors like you, we are improving the health and well-being of dogs, cats, horses and wildlife around the world.

Study Data Could Shed Light on Deadly Cancer

One of the significant hallmarks of the Golden Retriever Lifetime Study is real-time data collection that provides a more accurate picture of cancer occurrence in golden retrievers, along with prevalence of different cancer types. The Study team recently added histiocytic sarcoma (HS) to the primary endpoint cancers and is carefully tracking affected dogs.

Understanding Cancer in Cats

It’s important for pet parents to know about some of the more common types of cancer affecting cats to help keep their feline family members healthy.

60+ Years of Cancer Research

The Foundation’s support for pet cancer research started back in the early 1960s, when little was known about the disease in animals or humans. Learn about the impact we've made over the years.

Supporting Impactful Research – Mark L. Morris Jr. Investigator Award

Established in 2016, the Mark L. Morris Jr. Investigator Award provides funding to researchers studying and advancing knowledge on health issues in dogs and cats.

Volunteer's Kindness Shines Through

As Genell Bogner chats on Zoom, you can’t miss the dog show ribbons covering the wall behind her won by Frankie, Hero #2230 in the Golden Retriever Lifetime Study. Big in life and even bigger in heart, Frankie was a star. But that wasn’t enough to protect her from becoming a victim of hemangiosarcoma, the leading cause of death in the Study.


Cancer Doesn't Have to Be My Future

Did you know cancer is the leading cause of death in dogs over the age of 2, as well as in our senior cats? We have the power to change that through science. Make your gift by June 30 and it will be doubled, up to $100,000, by our generous donors, Petco Love and Blue Buffalo
