Stichting Schapendoes 1947

In 1997 the board of Vereniging “de Nederlandse Schapendoes” decided to create “Stichting Schapendoes 1947” with the following purpose:

  1. Financial support of scientific research of diseases in the Schapendoes breed. The aim is to improve the breeding policy of the V.N.S. where possible.
  2. Financial support for Schapendoes relates matters. For example: organising special events and Jubilea.

 Amongst others, the Stichting contributed to:

  • gPRA-research in Bochum
  • kidney research at the University of Utrecht
  • ECVO investigation at VNS events
  • the uropean PRA-fund
  • health lectures
  • een Schapendoes back to the Drentse sheepherd
  • jubilea publications of Vereniging de Nederlandse Schapendoes
  • developing Mean Kinship calculations in DoesData, with the WUR and Zooeasy

The work of the Stichting is only possible if we have sufficient financial means. The Stichting raises money through donations, gifts and activities like the lottery at the Kampioenschapsclubmatch or Jonge Honden Dag. The treasurer of the Stichting yearly reports about the financial overview, in the VNS Magazine, with a full overview of financial details.

If you wish to support the goals of the Stichting, your gift is always welcome at
