Donate to the Berner-Garde Foundation

All of us who are "owned" by Bernese Mountain Dogs (and those of us who wish to be owned by BMDs) want our dogs to have a superior quality of life for as many years as possible. In order to help accomplish this goal, the Berner-Garde Foundation has established our open Intenet database, a DNA and tumor tissue Repository, and other efforts to support scientific research on the diseases that affect our dogs.

Although much of the "people-work" for these efforts is done by volunteers, technological hardware/software, website expenses, DNA Repository expenses, and normal foundation business expenses depend on the generosity of Berner-loving people like you. Funding for Berner-Garde comes from fund-raising projects, donations and In Memorium/In Honor/With Gratitude Gifts. We greatly appreciate all contributions, no matter how large or small.

We encourage those of you who find our database useful and support our other programs to consider donating to the Foundation. In addition to donations made by check, we are now accepting donations via PayPal or Credit Card!
