How You Can Support Cornell Companions

If you are interested in giving a gift to assist in our important work, contact the college's office of public affairs.

Animal-assisted activities and animal-assisted therapy are incredibly rewarding experiences. These activities open lines of communication for persons whom this may not come naturally, and expand lines of communication between the veterinary community and society. Animal-assisted activities teach future veterinarians the interpersonal communication skills necessary for effective client communication. Volunteers learn to share the gift of animal companionship that might otherwise be overlooked. Cornell Companions volunteers recognize that animals are powerful healers, and are proud to serve the community in helping to promote human health.
