Morris Animal Foundation is a non-profit organization devoted to improving the health and well-being of companion animals and wildlife. The organization was started in 1948 by Mark Morris, DVM. Dr. Morris realized the need for humane health studies which were designed solely to benefit animals. Morris Animal Foundation disseminates the information gained from these studies to practicing veterinarians and veterinary institutions. Morris Animal Foundation is one of only a few organizations that can honestly say that all contributions made to it go to the funding of animal programs and not to administration or fund raising. This is possible because returns from endowment investments cover these expenses.
