Muscular Dystrophy Research

Posted December 09, 2016

Muscular dystrophy is a devastating disease of children and dogs, both of which die prematurely. MD occurs in nature in both. The dogs here are treated with great care and tenderness, as they help unravel the mysteries and potential cures for this dreadful disease, thus helping both children and animals. Not only do the people who work with these dogs truly care about them as individuals, there is rigorous oversight of their care by the:

  • USDA
  • NIH (National Institutes of Health)
  • DOD (Department of Defense)
  • AAALAC (Accrediting body that comes around every 3 years)

As you know, there are those who are vigorously against any use of animals in research. It saddens us that without full knowledge of what we are doing but with a rigid position, groups use slander that adversely affects the opinion of those who don’t know all of the facts.

Please be assured that those who work with our dogs have chosen to devote their lives and careers to the care and well being of animals.
