Ruperts Fund is a very special and enormously successful initiative to help breeders and researchers alike. It was started by Karlin, the owner of this forum, and Nicki Hughes, one of the Moderators, and so many of the members here have contributed to fundraising efforts here.

I want to say thank you to all those involved and express my appreciation to you all because RF paid for my five year old tricolour Faith to be rescanned under the BVA/KC CMSM Scheme and she has been shown to be still free of SM.

Faith was eligible for RF funding because she is an older bitch that has been scanned clear before. Quite a few of her extended family are also scanned.

A win/win situation..................... CMSM research benefits from her scan information and I know it is still safe for her to be mated.
