Grants to USA, Canada, and International researchers and research teams associated with institutions for projects to improve the health and welfare of large companion animals, such as horses, llamas, and alpacas. Animal health research projects must be humane, hypothesis-driven, and of high scientific merit and potential impact.

The mission of Morris Animal Foundation is to bridge science and resources to advance the health of animals. To achieve this aim, the Foundation funds hypothesis-driven, humane animal health research projects with high scientific merit and the potential for significant impact on animal health.

Four types of grants are available:
