Maddie's® Shelter Medicine Program

Saving lives through science, leadership, and service.

Shelter Medicine Club

The Shelter Medicine Club is an official student chapter of the Association of Shelter Veterinarians. The club was founded in 1999, and is involved with organizing opportunities for veterinary students to learn and become involved with shelter medicine.  The club sponsors evening lectures regarding a variety of shelter medicine-related topics, hosts weekly Monday lunch rounds presented by a Maddie’s® Shelter Medicine Program staff veterinarian, and organizes Saturday clinics at the Tompkins County SPCA to give veterinary students the chance to practice being a clinician in a shelter setting.  The club is also involved with many fundraising events including the annual Tompkins County SPCA March for Animals. The Shelter Medicine Student Club is open to all students at the Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine. To learn more, please email .
