A meaningful way to express compassion on your client's loss
The Cornell Feline Health Center's In Memoriam Program provides a positive way to show your compassion. A memorial contribution can gently convey your sympathy and understanding of their loss and reassures them that their cats' lives had significance. Your gift also demonstrates your commitment to the continued progress of feline medicine, because it supports the center's work. Ultimately, the progress made by the Center benefits both you and your clients by helping felines live longer and healthier lives.
How it Works
The process is simple. You complete and submit a memorial card - furnished by the center - with your pledge or contribution. We will send your client a personalized letter acknowledging your thoughtful gesture in memory of their pet. Contributions can be made at the time the card is submitted or they can be pledged and paid monthly. To request a starter package, please contact Donald Personius at (607) 253-3415.

Such positive reponses make it easy to understand why the In Memoriam Program is so popular with participating veterinarians. While the In Memoriam Program is designed to help your client through the bereavement phase, it also allows you to take an active role in advancing feline medicine while building your own practice.
