The Animal Foundation Conducts DNA Tests on Dogs to Increase Adoption Appeal

On October 17, 2017, KTNV Channel 13 in Las Vegas reported how The Animal Foundation recently had the opportunity to conduct DNA testing on 100 shelter dogs, thanks to a generous donation by Best Friends Animal Society.

The Animal Foundation, like so many shelters across America today, has many mixed breed dogs that people tend to identify as “pit bulls.” DNA testing helps to prove how wrong site identification can be and how a “pit bull” is not necessarily a pit bull. DNA testing improves the chances of adoption for shelter dogs and is just another step The Animal Foundation is taking to save all healthy and treatable animals who come into its care. 

Potential adopters may visit our campus at 655 North Mojave and our Everyday Adoption Center (EAC) at 286 W. Lake Mead Parkway in Henderson daily from 11am to 7pm. Search for adoptable pets.
