Morris Animal Foundation, the pre-eminent leader in advancing animal health, announced Jan. 22 it raised more than $1 million during its end-of-year-giving campaign, exceeding its goal of $900,000. The funds will allow the foundation to support even more scientific health studies benefiting animals around the world.
The two-month effort, which ran from Nov. 1 to Dec. 31, 2018, is the foundation’s largest annual giving campaign. It also included a $100,000 match from a generous group of anonymous donors.
“Words simply cannot express just how much we appreciate the help we received from our many supporters this holiday season,” said Tiffany Grunert, president and CEO of Morris Animal Foundation. “We are deeply appreciative of our donors who make our mission achievable. We can’t improve animal health without them.”
Morris Animal Foundation is committed to funding only the best scientific research, and more than 95 percent of all donations directly support its programs. Some recent examples of studies donor support make possible include:
Assessing a promising new vaccine to treat dogs with osteosarcoma, the most common primary bone tumor in canine patients
Developing new diagnostic and prognostic tests for feline infectious peritonitis (FIP)
Evaluating a new laboratory test to improve diagnosis of equine metabolic syndrome, a metabolic and hormonal disorder in horses
Managing emerging health threats for wildlife around the world, such as Tasmanian devil facial tumors
