How will my gift make an impact?
From hands-on training to business management education, private support advances UGA CVM's mission to prepare future veterinarians for the real world. With the help of generous donor support, the CVM launched a Shelter Medicine Program in partnership with the Athens Area Humane Society in Fall of 2021. During their clinical rotation, fourth-year students now:
- Perform approximately 70 spays and neuters.
- Gain experience in minor surgical and dental procedures.
- Provide wellness exams and vaccinations.
In addition to improving hands-on training opportunities, your gifts support supplies, equipment, student travel to national conferences, and improvements to our educational spaces. We are grateful for the many donors who support the future of veterinary medicine and education.
Is there a minimum gift?
The cost is $10 per pet that you would like to honor.
