Greetings from Toby's Foundation,

Toby's Foundation has given $10,000 to sponsor a New CHF grant!

Toby’s Foundation is pleased to announce that we have given $10,000 to sponsor a new CHF grant for Dr. Stephanie McGrath at Colorado State University and for continued support of three other CHF grants that we already sponsor for Drs. Karen Munana, Holger Andreas Volk and Gary Johnson. You can read about these grants on the research page of our website. Click here.


We want to thank the Canine Health Foundation (CHF) for their commitment to canine epilepsy research and for matching our $10,000 donation!


Over the next several months more research reports are due in and we look forward to sharing them with you.

Interest is high in canine epilepsy research. In the past two years we sponsored seven canine epilepsy research grants for six researchers! One of these researchers is Dr. Hannes Lohi who got the first big breakthrough in canine epilepsy research and was able to develop a screening test for the Rhodesian Ridgeback breed.  We are proud that we have sponsored three grants over the years for Dr. Hannes Lohi. Two of them we sponsored through (CHF) the Canine Health Foundation and the other one directly through Toby’s Foundation with (ASHGI) The Australian Shepherd Health and Genetics Institute as a sponsor on our grant. When Toby’s Foundation began almost 14 years ago there was little interest in canine epilepsy research. Toby’s Foundation raised awareness of the problem of canine epilepsy and got people interested in pursuing canine epilepsy research. We work for the day when every breed that needs a screening test will have one and dogs that suffer from this cruel disease will have more effective treatment options. Remember what we learn from one breed can help others, both canines and humans! Same disease different species!

Your help is needed for us to continue to support canine epilepsy research.


Make a difference today! Join us in the fight against canine epilepsy! We hope that you can make a donation today because Toby’s Foundation is one of the best ways you can fight canine epilepsy!
