At the College of Veterinary Medicine, people who care deeply about animals are working for the health and well-being of animals and people everywhere.  There are many ways you can support the College of Veterinary Medicine and a variety of giving opportunities we can discuss to meet your individual interests. Contact us to explore the possibilities.

We provide medical care for all kinds of animals.
Each year our veterinarians treat more than 55,000 animals - pets, farm animals, wildlife, zoo animals and exotic species. Our medical staff uses the newest technologies and advanced techniques in medicine
and surgery to assure the best health care for all of our animals patients. The hospital also provides medical
care for complex cases referred by veterinarians throughout the United States.

Our discoveries benefit the health of people too.
So much of the work we do at the College has direct benefits for humans as well as animals. We are making discoveries to help in the fight of many diseases and conditions including arthritis, cancer, heart disease, blindness, and infectious diseases like West Nile virus, Lyme disease, tuberculosis and rabies. We also are working to ensure safe food and drinking water.

Become our partner by making a gift today.
Take your love of animals further. Our work depends, in large part, on private donations from people just like you. Friends from all over the country have become our partners in funding many of our programs - programs that could not continue without this support. You, too, can help by making a tax-deductible donation today! Your gift might be just what the doctor ordered.

Make a gift in memory or honor of a pet
If there is a special animal you would like to remember or honor, consider a gift in his or her name to the College of Veterinary Medicine.  For a cherished pet there is no more fitting tribute than a gift to support the education of tomorrow’s veterinarians and discoveries that lead to better treatments and cures for animals and people.  A letter will be sent to the pet owner, letting him or her know of your thoughtfulness.  Click on the “Give Now” button to the right to make a gift.

Clinic Memorial Giving Program
This program gives your veterinary practice the ability to send a very warm and personal message to the clients who have recently lost their pets, while at the same time supporting the Cornell College of Veterinary Medicine. Gifts may be made in memory of any species. In exchange for a suggested donation of $25 per animal, we send a letter to your client with an address you provide.  These donations are tax deductible for your practice.  For more information on what your gifts support and how to make a gift, please visit our Clinic Memorial Giving Program site.
