Giving back to our community, our breeds, and our future!
We firmly believe every little bit helps, whether it's for research, comfort, adoption, science or investment, and we proudly give back to our community. Our dogs participate in research studies. Our dogs genetic results are used to research various hereditary and genetic diseases and faults.
Please consider donating what you can. Money goes a long way in funding research and cures, but it stops at monetary. Consider donating blood. Canine blood donation is often an overlooked gift. Plasma and blood donations can help save another dog's life! It is also vital in moving research along. If you can't give blood how about saliva! There is a plethora of genetic research for both dogs and human that is minimally invasive; simply swab the mouth.
If you are uncomfortable donating money and your body (or your dog's body) please donate your time. Volunteer, visit the sick, assist with collecting articles of clothing, or simply give someone your time to listen, pick up a bag of groceries, help them down the stairs, share a smile and a conversation. For those who struggle with illness (whether tending to ill family members, attending to your beloved pet, or suffering it themselves) the best thing you can do for them is be there. You don't need to cure them, just listen to them and acknowledge their feelings. Being sick is tough. Being chronically ill is devastating.
We participate with Vetnostic, Gensol, Doberman Diversity Project, Genes for Good (University of Michigan), uBiome, 23 and Me as well as assisted with local food drives, shelters and more. If you want to give back too, don't wait!
