Support the School of Veterinary Medicine on Give Day!

Inspiration happens every day at the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine. Your support will help us continue to provide unparalleled expert and compassionate care, translate scientific discovery into life-saving solutions, and train tomorrow’s veterinary leaders. 

Every gift, no matter its size, fuels our ability to ensure that every patient gets the world-class care they deserve.

Whether caring for pets or ensuring a safe food supply, preserving endangered species or protecting people from cross-species diseases, our faculty, staff and students embody a special commitment to improving the lives of animals and their human companions.

A healthier world for animals and people depends upon the dedication and generosity of benefactors like you. We are honored to have you as a partner in our mission and grateful for your continued support and friendship. 

Let's make Give Day count for a greater future in veterinary medicine — together! 

Being the best never gets old!
