About fundraising


SM DNA Research is the beneficiary of several autonomous fundraising initiatives with common objectives.

For the Love of Ollie co-funded the Griffon MRIs for the genome research, radiograph (X-ray) research paper, Canadian ‘over 5year ’ cavalier project and currently the DTI research project in Canada (Sandy Smith)

Rupert’s Fund was set up to fund Cavalier MRIs for the over 5’s the results which underpin many areas of past and current research into CM and particularly SM. It is also currently funding the DTI and the genetic research (Karlin Lillington and Nicki Hughes)

Friends of Lola Fund has funded research into Griffons and other breeds especially the current genetic research into CM and Conformational Study (Rachel Harvey)
