American Kennel Club Canine Health Foundation

As new vector-borne pathogens continue to be identified and the spread of tick-borne disease (TBD) rises, the AKC Canine Health Foundation continues its commitment to address this emergent issue by funding critical research to diagnose, prevent and treat vector-borne diseases in dogs. Diseases of interest include, but not limited to, heartworm disease, leishmaniasis, ehrlichiosis, anaplasmosis, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, hepatozoonosis, babesiosis, bartonellosis, hemotropic mycoplasmosis, and Lyme disease. The Foundation supports a One Health and multi-disciplinary approach to addressing the health needs of all dogs and their people.

CHF is seeking innovative approaches to vector-borne diseases (VBD), including the study of co-infections.

Both Acorn ($15,000 maximum including 8% maximum indirect costs) and Oak ($15,000 - $50,000 including 8% maximum indirect costs) grant proposals that can be completed within the budget will be accepted for review.
