The Golden Retriever Lifetime Study

60% of Golden Retrievers will die of cancer. Your dog can help change that.


Morris Animal Foundation’s Golden Retriever Lifetime Study is the largest and longest effort ever undertaken to improve the health of dogs. Over the next 10 to 14 years, observational data collected from 3,000 Golden Retrievers will help researchers learn how to prevent cancer and other diseases that take the lives of dogs too soon.


More than 70 million dogs live in the United States. Half of them over the age of 10 will die of cancer. In fact, cancer is the leading cause of death in dogs over the age of 2.

We must stop this disease.
