Rupert's Fund crosses the £5,000 mark
Another major milestone! Rupert's Fund is now just over £5,175 -- that's more than $8,000, or €6,200!!
Once again thanks so much to the many, many people, breeders and pet owners, who have given to this fund. It is making a major difference for the results and detailed information that can be produced by the genome scan project as it moves into its final stages.
Thanks to so many donors, of small to large amounts, 18 dogs have been scanned that would almost certainly never have been scanned and included in this final phase otherwise. Another 7 are funded and researchers are just waiting for a scanning day to get the next group in.
Let's keep climbing towards £10,000!!
