Whether it’s a gift inspired by the care your animal received in the Veterinary Health Center or as a memorial to a lost member of your family, you can make a difference in veterinary care for other animals right now.
Every day, someone says goodbye to their best friend at the Veterinary Health Center because of a disease such as cancer, diabetes or colic. The Miles Fund was established in the memory of a Golden Retriever named Miles, who was diagnosed with and eventually succumbed to lymphoma. (Read Miles’ story here on page 14.) The question is, how many more of our best friends like Miles do we have to lose much too soon?
While we've come a long way in detecting and treating diseases, we have miles to go. That is why the hospital is naming its primary development fund, "The Miles Fund." Any gift that is made to the hospital will go into The Miles Fund, and donors can direct their gift to support any area of the hospital they wish. A donor can choose to support large animal or small, any specialty area such as oncology or small animal medicine, or they can create a memorial through a naming opportunity.
Giving to the Veterinary Health Center
