We love these special friends, and that's why many people choose to honor their pet with a gift to the Companion Animal Trust Fund at the Atlantic Veterinary College. Not only is the contribution a lasting tribute, it also will enable the Atlantic Veterinary College to bring hope to others.
Donations may also be made in honour of living pet or person, or in appreciation for exceptional veterinary attention.
A gift to the Companion Animal Trust Fund contributes to work which is specifically aimed at improving the health of companion animals. Funds provide a means of continuing research on animal disease; the cause and cure. Funds may also be targeted to improve facilities and equipment for the College's Veterinary Teaching Hospital.
Gifts can be made in the following ways:
