The Animal Research Foundation

Founded by Tom D. Stodghill (1903 – 1989), an article[1]The Truth about the Registries by Tom Stodghill, Stodghill’s Animal Research Magazine Spring-Summer 1971 Issue, page 16 written by the founder states that The Animal Research Foundation was set up in 1950 as the English Shepherd Club of America (ESCOA). By 1953, [The ESCOA] had reached 108 members.

Later artifacts including the ARF website and ARF logo (at left) indicated that the Animal Research Foundation was established in 1947 rather than 1950.
