Who We Are

Helping Animals Live Longer, Healthier Lives

Founded in 1969 by the Michigan Veterinary Medical Association, the Michigan Animal Health Foundation (MAHF) was created to allow those who love animals an opportunity to donate money to assist in improving animal health and well-being through tax-exempt contributions.MAHF provides grants to those working on research and educational projects that help animals to have longer, better, and healthier lives and advance the practice of medicine.

We work hard to improve the lives of animals.

Every day, we work to improve the lives of animals, but we need you by our side. As a MAHF supporter, you can help provide care for an animal that would otherwise not receive it.
