This month High 5 Plumbing Cares is delighted to work with Morris Animal Foundation. The nonprofit is focused on improving the health of dogs, cats, horses, elephants, and much more.

Their efforts are recognized globally but they are based locally in Denver, Colorado.

Join us as we follow them on their mission to have healthier animals in both our homes and natural environments!

What is Morris Animal Foundation?

Founded by a veterinarian in 1948, Morris Animal Foundation continues to be a science-driven organization, funding critical health studies for the benefit of all animals.

20,000+ species benefit from this organization’s research. Diseases often aren’t species-specific. When they help one animal, the new knowledge gained can have a ripple effect to help related species or entire ecosystems.

Since 1948, they have supported more than 200 institutions worldwide and funded 1,060+ dogs, 420+ cats, 590+ large animals (horses, llamas, alpacas), and 690+ wildlife studies. Morris Animal Foundation also has supported the training of more than 600 veterinary and postdoctoral students all to improve the lives of the animals we love.

How does this organization work?

At any given time, Morris Animal Foundation has over 150 studies underway to address important health challenges, from conducting the largest cancer-focused study of its kind in dogs, to supporting research critical to saving endangered species worldwide.

The knowledge gained from their research is shared freely so that animals can benefit from our scientific advancements as soon as they are available.

This nonprofit actively supports the work of established researchers as well as promising young investigators. They are a leading provider of unbiased scientific information and apply the highest scientific standards to achieve innovative solutions to health challenges – all to usher the animal kingdom into a healthier future.

It was the dream of Dr. Mark L. Morris Sr., when he established the Foundation in 1948, to advance veterinary medicine and improve animal health. The organization continues to make that dream a reality every day.
