Morris Animal Foundation improves the health and well-being of companion animals and wildlife by funding humane health studies and disseminating information about those studies.
From fur to feathers to fins, the vast diversity of the animal kingdom inspires awe. Even animals of the same species can vary greatly in looks and personality. Their originality is one reason we love animals so passionately.
Morris Animal Foundation strives each day to keep every animal healthy. Our work helps dogs, cats, horses, llamas and alpacas, sea otters, birds, fish, lions, gorillas, elephants, pandas and many other species. We also recognize that although many health problems effect multiple species, each animal must be treated as an individual.
This is one reason why we have launched species-specific initiatives like the Canine Cancer Campaign, The Equine Health Initiative, and The Happy Healthy Cat Campaign. Focusing intensely on individual health issues can lead to even more rapid health advances. But we never forget our mission to serve all companion animals and wildlife. So many animals need our help, and we continue to fund studies to help them all.
Morris Animal Foundation has a rich history and an even richer future. The Foundation has always sought cures for diseases of dogs, cats, horses, llamas, alpacas and wildlife species throughout the world. As we enter a new phase for the Foundation, we are excited to share our passion for science and the animals that can benefit from good science.
Through prudent management of our resources, generous gifts from donors of all magnitude and the support of animal lovers worldwide, we have the ability to significantly advance the health and welfare of our animal friends. Science is not easy. Science is not quick. But science offers us the best chance to find lasting cures for the most vexing diseases in veterinary medicine today. With your help, we can do great things. On behalf of all of the animals helped by Morris Animal Foundation-funded research, thank you.
