CERF is going out of business:  After nearly 30 years of working towards the elimination of heritable eye disease in dogs, The Canine Eye Registration Foundation will stop accepting new registrations for the CERF registry on June 15, 2014.  Our on-line registry will continue to be available for approximately the next year after which CERF records will be able via the OFA website.  CERF would like to thank all of our breeders and dog lovers for their continued support over these many years. Please direct any questions and/or concerns that you may have to  CERF was founded by a group of concerned purebred owners and breeders with the goal of eliminating heritable eye diseases in purebred dogs through registration, research, and education.
