Royal Canin launches foundation to fund HAI research

The Foundation is governed independently from the Royal Canin Company and aims to build human and social capital, which represents investments in knowledge, talent, diversity and relationships with stakeholders.

The Royal Canin Foundation has set three focus areas: the health and welfare of working dogs; pets in support of medical health; and pets in support of human mental health.  The projects identified for funding will be selected on an annual basis. In 2021, close to 1 million USD will be put towards more than 10 projects from different parts of the world, including COVID-19 and cancer detection, raising healthy and happy assistance dogs, using dogs in training communication skills for children with autism, and developing certification for the trainers of medical detection dogs.
