All of Morris Animal Foundation leadership and staff, including the Golden Retriever Lifetime Study, thank you for supporting us. We are grateful for the dedication you show in so many ways, including organizing, hosting and attending engagement and fundraising events. We know these gatherings take a great deal of work.
During this time of COVID-19, with cases in some areas continuing to spike and so much uncertainty about which behaviors constitute safety, the stand of the Foundation is to err on the side of caution. We do not feel it is appropriate at this time for any events to take place on behalf of the Foundation or in the name of the Study or Foundation. Out of an abundance of care for our participants, supporters and donors, we are not encouraging, promoting or supporting any public gatherings now and for the foreseeable future. We will continue to help promote and support virtual events.
We know this is a difficult time and your safety is our top priority.
Again, thank you for all you do for the Study and for being such an integral part of our work. The Study could not succeed without your devotion and your precious dogs.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Annie Li , External Engagement Associate.
