Royal Canin promotes positive role of pets

The Royal Canin Foundation is based in Aimargues, France, the international headquarters of Royal Canin.

Royal Canin has announced the establishment of the Royal Canin Foundation. This foundation aims to promote the positive role that pets play in a healthy society.

As part of its work, the Royal Canin Foundation focuses on three key areas: on healthy environments for working dogs, on pets that play a key role in the medical healthcare of people, and on pets that play an important role in promoting people's mental health. Corresponding projects or initiatives will each be funded for a period of one year.

In its inaugural year of 2021, the Royal Canin Foundation is supporting more than ten grant projects worldwide with a total of approximately one million dollars. These include research projects on the use of pets in Covid-19 and cancer screening, as well as initiatives that develop sustainable rearing and training methods for assistance dogs. Support is also being given to a project that uses assistance dogs to enhance the communication skills of children with autism and an initiative that is developing certification for trainers of medical detection dogs.
