Greetings from Toby's Foundation!

Are there still dogs affected with epilepsy that have not
had their blood drawn yet and sent in for the research?
Do you have a dog affected with epilepsy? Do you know
someone who has a dog affected with epilepsy? We ask you to
please donate a blood sample from your affected dog and ask
the person you know who has an affected dog if they have given
a blood sample yet. Blood from affected dogs is vital to the
research. Please make your dog a part of this important
research to find the genes responsible for canine epilepsy and
develop a screening test. Instructions and forms for sending
in a blood sample to Dr. Ned Patterson who is heading up the
research for us at the University of Minnesota are available
on our website by clicking the link below.
If you have
any questions or need assistance please let us know. If you
have already given, thank you.

Holding a Fundraiser...
We have always featured our donors and
special designations on our website. We would now like to
begin highlighting the efforts of our supporters who raise
funds for us. By running a fundraiser, you not only make a
donation to help us stop canine epilepsy but you also help us
raise awareness of the problem by getting others involved. We
have already had some Aussie clubs send donations from raffles
they have held and those clubs are listed on our website. With
this new feature, we can highlight any individual's or group's
No amount or event is too small.
Whether it’s a cake sale, car wash, raffle or auction at a dog
show, a formal dinner or other event, we would like to PR your
effort. Just tell us what you did and/or send us a picture so
we can highlight the event. We would particularly love to get
kids involved in caring, sharing and working for better health
for all dogs by helping to stop this disease. For example, if
you work at a school, the students could run a fundraiser for
us and we would feature their efforts on our website. We can
make available Toby’s Foundation brochures to have on hand for
