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.
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.
America’s Favorite Veterinarian is a nationwide contest that identifies and celebrates extraordinary veterinarians. This contest honors and recognizes those entrusted to preserve and protect the health and well-being of animals and to celebrate the special relationships pet owners share with their veterinarians.
From Farm to Family Table educates the public on the important role that veterinarians play in all aspects of food safety, from development to consumption. AVMF supports programs and research that will help us learn more about animal related threats that could potentially harm our nation’s food supply.
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.
