Support Us

The McCowan Lab and IIHAN relies on generous donations from individuals, businesses, and foundations to fulfill our mission. Your contributions of time and resources provide operational support to IIHAN and allows staff to provide services to project areas that are difficult to fund through conventional scientific grant and award mechanisms. Your gift provides invaluable support as we work to understand the interactions between animals and people and serve those living in that interface.

On behalf of the students, staff, and animals who benefit from your contributions, we thank you for supporting the IIHAN!

Funds from the IIHAN Adopt-A-Researcher program help the IIHAN staff and students work in more than 10 international welfare and conservation programs that help both people and animals.

One-of-a-kind benefits are available at various levels, from $20-2000. It's a personal way to help the IIHAN's efforts at the human-animal interface, and a unique way to create a special bond with someone working in the field!

Adoptions also make great gifts for family and friends! Recipients receive a thank you email from IIHAN Director and Project Coordinator and a certificate of appreciation. Higher contribution levels recieve special gifts, which include IIHAN logoed items and VIP tour of IIHAN labs at UC Davis.
