AKC Canine Health Foundation Earns Coveted Four-Star Rating from Charity Navigator

The AKC Canine Health Foundation (CHF), whose mission is to advance the health of all dogs and their owners by funding scientific research and supporting the dissemination of health information to prevent, treat and cure canine disease, has earned a four-star rating from Charity Navigator, America’s largest independent charity evaluator.

“AKC Canine Health Foundation’s exceptional four-star rating sets it apart from its peers and demonstrates its trustworthiness to the public,” according to Michael Thatcher, President and CEO of Charity Navigator. “Only a quarter of charities rated by Charity Navigator receive the distinction of our four-star rating. Based on its four-star rating, people can trust that their donations are going to a financially responsible and ethical charity when they decide to support AKC Canine Health Foundation.”

Achieving a four-star rating from Charity Navigator — the organization’s highest rating — is very significant in the nonprofit industry and acknowledges that CHF exceeds industry standards for fiscal responsibility and outperforms most charities in its category.

“We are pleased to have earned this recognition and to be listed among the top nonprofits in the country,” states Dr. Diane Brown, CHF CEO. “CHF employs a stringent grant review process which allows us to be confident that research is doing the most good for the most dogs while making the best use of our donors’ contributions. The support we receive from our donors demonstrates their trust in our process and vision.”

Since its founding in 1995, CHF has awarded over $46 million in canine health research and educational grants. CHF currently manages 133 active grants in 23 research program areas specifically for dogs, including three current research initiatives focused on hemangiosarcoma, epilepsy, and tick-borne disease. Donations from individual dog lovers, dog clubs, foundations and corporations are invested in a diverse portfolio of innovative grants to find better treatments, more accurate diagnoses, and an improved understanding of the mechanisms that cause disease in dogs.
