The Health Committee works with the AKC Canine Health foundation, Morris Animal Foundation and the Flat-coated Retriever Foundation to identify and recommend funding to support research into cancer and other health problems affecting Flat-Coated Retrievers.
A list of active and closed grants, including detailed information on the individual studies that the Flat-Coated Retriever Foundation has supported can be found on the FCR foundation website https://www.fcrfoundation.org/cgi-bin/health_studies.pl . Please consider donating to the foundation in honor of or in memory of a particular dog or person to help fund these important research studies.
There are other ways you can help donate money to support the efforts of the FCR foundation and the Health Committee to improve the health of our dogs.
