Core Values

Morris Animal Foundation's core values are important to us as an organization. We have a positive company culture and encourage our staff (and office dogs!) to live by these values here at the office. We're proud of the people we work with, and strive to apply excellence, respect, compassion, collaboration, innovation and determination every day in our work.


We advance animal health by funding only research that meets the highest scientific standards. We are committed to ensuring the best use of donor funds and Foundation resources to benefit animals everywhere.


We act with integrity and are accountable to the needs of others and respectful of their time, expertise and opinions. We listen and communicate thoughtfully, directly and openly, always assuming good intent. We are inclusive and value diversity.


We care deeply about animals and the people who care for them. It is our responsibility and an honor to improve animal health.


We actively partner, creatively work together and freely share ideas to advance the science of animal health and grow our impact. We nurture, grow and educate the animal health community that shares our passion. Together we can do more.


At our core, we value proven science but also seek creative solutions to meet the growing challenges of animal health in a changing global ecosystem. Based on what we learn, we constantly evolve to achieve our mission.


We are driven by our mission and seek answers with relentless pursuit. Using science as our compass, we develop pathways to animal health solutions. So long as animals face health concerns, we will continue to find answers.
