Additional Gift Funds

Do you want to indicate where your donation for patient care is directed? These fund options have been established for a specific type of care or animal species, allowing you to choose where your gift will have the greatest impact, if the Indigent Pet Fund is not the best fit for you.

Helping Cats


  • Pascoe Memorial Fund: To support the treatment of feline animal companions whose owners are financially unable to cover the costs associated with emergency surgical and medical treatments in the Veterinary Teaching Hospital 
  • Bob E. Lee Sheeley Memorial Fund: For shelter or stray felines or feline companions whose owners have limited financial resources. 

Helping Dogs

  • KodiakCare Fund: To provide life-saving care for dogs whose owners could not otherwise move forward with critical veterinary care. 

Helping Horses

Help for Specific Conditions

  • Lifelink: To help pets facing life-threatening disease or injury by subsidizing the cost of emergency surgery, expensive medications, and other treatments that will save or enhance a pet’s quality of life. The owner is expected to share in the cost of this care. 
  • Sabu (Cancer): To support pet owners who cannot afford oncology treatments in the Veterinary Teaching Hospital.
  • Shirley Atwood Langridge Fund (Liver Disease): To fund research in the area of canine liver disease and/or to support the care and treatment of patients at the Small Animal Clinic. 
  • Gary & Mary Stamp ER/ICU Endowment Fund: To help cover the cost of care for pets admitted to the emergency room or intensive care unit at the Veterinary Teaching Hospital. 

Helping Special Cases

  • Florence Wissig Dunbar Veterinary Care: To help ensure treatment and care for small animals belonging to individuals or families who might not otherwise be able to afford such treatment and care. 
  • Friend in Need: To support any non-preventative care for small animals, including but not limited to, emergency care, cardiology, and oncology. For pets with owners, the owner must cover a portion of the cost; for ownerless animals, the entire cost of services may be covered by the fund. 
  • Humane Connection: To support the care of companion animals, whether owned or homeless, that do not have adequate financial means and that would enrich the learning experience of veterinary students. 
  • Maggie & Murphy Indigent Pet Fund: To provide urgent or serious chronic care for pets that are the primary companion of their owner, but whose owner cannot afford the necessary treatments.
