At the AVMF we are sensitive to the fact that many loving and caring pet owners unexpectedly find themselves in difficult situations that prevent them from providing the immediate medical care their pet needs. VCCF gives the animal-loving public the opportunity to work with veterinarians to provide veterinary care for underprivileged and disabled pet owners.
America’s Favorite Veterinarian honors those entrusted to preserve and protect the health and well-being of our animals. The contest celebrates the special relationships pet owners share with their veterinarians and spotlights other pivotal roles veterinarians play in society as medical professionals in animal health research, public health, government services and academia.
Our Oath in Action continues to connect members of the veterinary profession with volunteer opportunities in their community. This program gives veterinarians, technicians, assistants and staff members the opportunity to reach out and connect to the animal loving public outside of the veterinary clinic.
Saving the Whole Family helps meet the needs of animals and the veterinary community before, during and after disasters. Saving the Whole Family also educates pet owners on developing emergency preparedness plans for their pets.
Animal health research is crucial to the future of veterinary medicine. The AVMF devotes its efforts to raising financial support for research projects that will lead to improved treatment and cures for prevalent, life-threatening illnesses in animals such as cancer and diabetes - illnesses that have touched so many of the animals we love and care for.
AVMF is committed to helping offset the cost of veterinary medical education. Ultimately, we look to identify outstanding veterinary students capable of changing the world by addressing the health and research needs of society – both today and tomorrow.
