I love "Special Friends" in Utah.  They take all animals:  dogs, cats, horses, mules, etc. and have special compounds for each species on 3000 acres.  I've had friends volunteer there and they've come back raving about what an amazing job they do!

I vote for Canine Health Foundation: They fund research grants for all sorts of canine health ailments.
More info here: http://www.akcchf.org/research/index.cfm?nav_area=research

i also think this concept has the potential of starting breed wars...   If folks could give more info about organizations that would be super.  There are a ton of breed specific rescues out there, and unfortunately we can't help them all.  I think we should focus on rescues that deal with really special needs dogs, or across large and giant breeds in general.

I think that's why I suggested Canine Health Foundation, because it isn't specific. It is associated with the akc somehow, but I don't know how. It looks like some of the breed specific orginazation give to this also.. said in the research section that the bernese mountain dog fanciers contributed $40,000 for cancer research, and the grant total is $200,000

Not trying to push them, have no personal experience, not related, blah blah, just heard about it and it sounds like a good thing.

Ok.. so no Breed Specific charities? That sounds fair enough! Would we all agree on that?

Jaime, I completely agree....non-breed specific.  As much as I adore Newfs, there are so many Newf people out there ready to take care of our own.  What about all the other mixed breeds....smal l and large.   Also breeds that are not as well represented need to be taken care of!  It's not their fault that they are here...it's irresponsible people that cause them to be here...and we owe 'em!
