WE FUND MORE ANIMAL HEALTH STUDIES, IN MORE SPECIES, IN MORE PLACES AROUND THE WORLD THAN ANY OTHER ORGANIZATION.
At any given time, we have over 150 studies underway to address important health challenges, from conducting the largest cancer-focused study of its kind in dogs, to supporting research critical to saving endangered species worldwide. The knowledge gained from our research is shared freely so that animals can benefit from our scientific advancements as soon as they are available.

WE ENVISION A WORLD WHERE ANIMALS LIVE FULL AND HEALTHY LIVES.

Since 1948, we’ve supported more than 200 institutions worldwide and funded 1,090+ dog, 430+ cat, 605+ large animal (horses, llamas, alpacas), and 710+ wildlife studies. We also have supported the training of more than 600 veterinary and postdoctoral students all to improve the lives of the animals we love.

WE ARE A LEADER IN INFECTIOUS DISEASE RESEARCH.

Our early work supported the development of vaccines for feline leukemia virus and Potomac horse fever, and many other infectious disease breakthroughs that continue today, including a new treatment for deadly FIP.

WE’VE IMPROVED CANCER TREATMENT AND DIAGNOSTICS.

We have been funding cancer research to benefit animals since 1962. From finding ways to improve chemotherapy to tackling virus-causing cancers, advanced surgical techniques and adjunct therapies – we imagine a world where all cancers are treatable and more cures are possible.
