Donate for genetic diversity

In de last years we both spend a lot of time and money in keeping the genetic diversity of the Icelandic Sheepdog. Most of this money is spend on software, travel expenses, testing and storing of frozen semen of old genetically important males. We did this with a lot of pleasure and passion and keep on doing this for our breed. Lately more people in the Icelandic Sheepdog world told us they would want to support us and really appreciated our efforts. Because of this people told us they would want to pay for the data they get from our application form of our website. This was for us not an option because we want people to freely ask for data and being busy with improving the breed. Nevertheless we could appreciate and use financial support for our work on genetic diversity. This is why from now on you can donate us an amount when you appreciate our work and would like to help us achieve our goals.

You can donate using Paypal by clicking on the button below. When you donate using the button you pay 3,4% + €0,35 transaction fee to Paypal (when donating €5 you pay €0,52 to Paypal this is 10,4%).
