Health and Genetics Fund

The purpose of this fund is to collect financial donations for the exclusive use in funding grants for genetic research and related health projects. Through the support and generosity of donors, the Foundation has granted over $90,000 in research funding to date.

How do we decide on what type of research project to grant?

In collaboration with the USASA Health and Genetics Committee and under the advisement of the AKC Canine Health Foundation, the United States Australian Shepherd Foundation will grant money to a researcher or project that is deemed promising and will hopefully make a positive impact on the future health and well being of Australian Shepherds.
