Study Funding FAQS

How is the Golden Retriever Lifetime Study funded?

Morris Animal Foundation worked diligently before the Golden Retriever Lifetime Study launched in 2012 to ensure a project of this scope would have the funding necessary to carry it through the expected 10- to 14-year duration. Seed money and ongoing support from the Mark and Bette Morris Family Foundation, long-term corporate sponsorships, and continued support from individual donors will help ensure that funding requirements are met.

If you are interested in a corporate partnership or you are an individual animal lover who is interested in investing in this project, please contact Morris Animal Foundation at 800.243.2345.

You can also make a donation to the Golden Retriever Lifetime study.

Will the corporate sponsors have any influence over the study design or how the results are presented?

To ensure the scientific integrity of the study, Morris Animal Foundation does not allow corporate sponsors to influence the design or operation of the study. A study publications committee comprised of academic and Morris Animal Foundation scientists is responsible for authorizing all publications that result from the study data, and for any additional studies. This will ensure publications originating from corporate sponsors accurately report study findings.
