Caring for Animals

Helping all kinds of animals (and sometimes their owners too)

From dogs to cats, cows to horses, barn owls to bobcats, the students and veterinarians at the College of Veterinary Medicine treat all kinds of animals. Whether you are a past client of the Veterinary Teaching Hospital, have brought an animal into the Wildlife Medical Clinic, or simply love animals, you can make a difference in the lives of the animals we treat. When you make a gift to one of the following funds, every day animal companions receive healing care, animal owners find support and information, wild animals in need get help, and future practitioners grow in the art and science of veterinary medicine.

A Friend in Need Animal Care Fund

Pets are family members and friends. Sometimes, the cost of veterinary care exceeds an owner’s budget. A Friend in Need Animal Care Fund for Current Use will help owners with limited budgets get care for their pets and also support care for homeless animals.
