Each year most of us ask each other “What do you want for the holidays?” and ourselves “What do I give so-and-so for the holidays?” The American German Shepherd Dog Charitable Foundation, Inc. (AGSDCF) has an answer – give a donation for the health of the breed in their name!
Why give a gift to the AGSDCF in honor of a friend or loved one? It is a gift that brings promise for better health and a longer life to our beloved breed. Giving a gift to the AGSDCF takes the stress out of shopping while putting more meaning into giving.
Instead of racking your brain with what to give, why not participate in this great program? Gift cards are available for you to mail or give to family and friends.
!!!!! There is no minimum giving !!!!!!
This is a great way for you to say “Happy Holidays” to friends as well as the breeder(s) of your dog(s), owners of your puppies, your handler, etc.
You can donate to our Pastor’s Fund or to the General Fund.
Donations to the Pastor’s Fund will go to the American Kennel Club Canine Health Foundation (AKC/CHF) for Grant 01937-B; Evaluating the Complex Genetic Basis of Bloat. The principal investigator for this grant is Dr. Claire Rebecca Sharp, BVMS at Tufts University. Unfortunately gastric dilatation and volvulus (GDV) or bloat is a common condition in large dogs like the German Shepherd Dog. The ultimate aim of Dr. Sharp’s research is to understand what causes GDV or bloat in order to learn how to prevent the disease from occurring.
In 2014, the Foundation has funded $42,000 in grants to the AKC/CHF and Morris Animal Foundation. See the latest grants funded by the Foundation
