The Veterinary Memorial Fund was founded in 1985 through a cooperative effort of the Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine (VA-MD Vet Med) and the Virginia Veterinary Medical Association (VVMA). The fund receives memorial contributions from veterinarians, owners, and animal lovers. These gifts honor the special bonds between companion animals and their owners and make funds available to support scientific investigations which improve the quality of health care for future generations.
The Veterinary Memorial Fund helps transform an emotionally difficult period into something beneficial for all concerned. The bereaved are comforted through the realization that something positive has risen from an otherwise painful event, veterinarians are provided with a thoughtful way to express condolences to their clients, and medical knowledge is advanced.
Since its founding, the Veterinary Memorial Fund has raised almost $1.5 million, funds that have supported over 100 different projects designed to foster improved veterinary medical care for our beloved pets. The Fund has helped VA-MD Vet Med scientists develop knowledge, improve procedures, and perfect techniques in areas such as genetics, imaging technologies, chemotherapy, wound healing, dental disease and equine laminitis.
Thank you for your support!
