DENVER, Oct. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Morris Animal Foundation (MAF) provides a unique opportunity for individuals or groups to help animals via its animal health study sponsorships. In 2009, MAF will fund nearly 200 animal health studies. Animal lovers, both individuals and groups, are invited to sponsor or co-sponsor one of these studies with a total gift of $3,000 or more per study. The complete listing of 2009 studies and their descriptions is available at, or request a printed Study Sponsorship Opportunities booklet by calling 800.243.2345. Projects address the health and well-being of dogs, cats, horses, llamas/alpacas and wildlife.


MAF's 2009 selection of studies is being conducted at nearly 50 of the world's most elite veterinary colleges, zoological institutions and scientific research centers. In addition to key facts on MAF, the sponsorship booklet details 46 canine health studies, including many crucial health and welfare issues such as cancer, heart disease, infectious diseases like influenza and pain management. Likewise, 30 feline health research studies cover asthma, cancer, kidney diseases and diabetes. The selection of 17 equine studies includes research on foal diseases, laminitis, pain management and colic. The directory also covers 6 health studies related to nutrition, pain management and genetics in llamas/ alpacas as well as 5 studies for MAF's special campaigns for canine cancer and equine genetics.

The directory also details some 42 wildlife health studies covering mountain gorillas, elephants, wild cats, foxes, wolves, fish, birds, marine life and much more. MAF is the world's largest private source of funding for wildlife health research.

In addition to traditional studies, 43 Veterinary Student Scholars are conducting short-term health study projects at universities worldwide. The MAF-supported program is designed to help fill a critical need for training the next generation of veterinary scientists. Veterinary Student Scholars are given the opportunity to work with a mentor on research projects early in their careers, allowing them to consider a career in veterinary research. These projects are also available for sponsorship in 2009 and are listed on the MAF Web site.
