About the Fund

The Feline Health Research Fund supports the advance of feline health so that no kitten or cat suffers from a preventable sickness.   We want to ensure first rate treatments are developed by raising and directing financial support to areas of feline research affecting the breeding and wellbeing of cats in Australia. 

The Fund makes grants annually to Australian-based researchers and organisations whose work makes a practical contribution to the health, wellbeing and longevity of domestic cats in Australia.


The FHRF is a tax-deductible, non-profit Public Ancillary Fund.
