Chinese Shar-Pei Charitable Trust

The Chinese Shar-Pei Club of America, Inc. formed the Chinese Shar-Pei Charitable Trust as a 501-3c not-for-profit charitable organization in 1995 for the express purpose of funding research into the health problems of the Chinese Shar-Pei breed. Shortly after that the Charitable Trust joined with the AKC Canine Health Foundation. These two groups work together with the Charitable Trust funding Shar-Pei health related projects supported by the AKC Canine Health Foundation and also funding independent research into health problems common in Shar-Pei. The AKC/CHF is the administrative arm of our grant management and contributes as much as 50% of the grant money to many projects.  The main focus has been the development of a blood test to identify carriers of the gene for Familial Shar-Pei Fever (FSF) and Amyloidosis. Research has been disappointing, but is ongoing with a new grant approved to fund a study at Colorado State University and the National Institutes of Health. New projects will be directed towards mast cell cancer and other diseases that afflict Shar-Pei.

The Charitable Trust needs your support through donations to continue vital research projects. Your donation is tax deductible. For a donation of $50 or more you will receive a special sterling silver Shar-Pei Gaurdian Angel Pin and for a donation of $250 or more you will receive a 14k Gold Angel Pin. If you would like to check out the AKC Canine Health Foundation web site just click on their logo below.

I strongly endorse this organization and the projects they have funded to improve our dogs' lives.  Without the monies donated to the Charitable Trust, we would have no on-going research.  We need your support and your dollars.  Please consider making a donation today and include them in your regular charitable giving.
