Our Mission

Our organization is dedicated to improving the health of the Berger Picard by funding research, disseminating information, and promoting health testing. Our goal is to support the efforts for the cure of canine diseases through prevention, treatment and knowledge.

The beginning...

This is just the start of a much needed independent drive to help our breed. In 2016, we were granted 501c3 status with the federal government that makes donations tax deductible for our non-profit organization. We are in the process of developing projects to work on to help with our mission. We are independent of any breed club, but we appreciate the support of them.

Thank you to everyone who has donated or participated in our fundraisers so far.  Your donations have been critical in helping us fund the efforts to obtain our 501c3 status and will continue to help us with our planned projects.  Please visit our Research Projects page to stay up to date on what we are working on.

We welcome volunteers who would like to be a part of this effort. If you'd like to help, please go to the How You Can Help page to learn how you can help us achieve our goals. Below are links of how you can help financially if you aren't able to volunteer.  All help is appreciated.
