Millions of dogs live in shelters. Reducing their stress and helping them find lasting homes is one of many projects the Canine Science Collaboratory is immersed in as they seek to improve the lives of dogs and their people. Your generosity fuels their research and enhances their impact. By giving to the Canine Science Collaboratory, you are helping them address questions surrounding dog behavior and cognition, including the impact of owning a dog and how their cognition changes as they age.

The secret of dogs' success is their ability to make friends...Dogs really are all about love."

Clive Wynne, Professor of Psychology and director of the Canine Science Collaboratory.
