The program requires funds for general operating costs including publications, communications, and educational and enrichment materials for shelters.
Veterinary student training
To enhance their shelter skills, veterinary students need support to travel to shelters outside of Tompkins County to gain experience or to attend training workshops.
Intern and Resident training
Shelter interns/residents need funds to travel to shelters throughout the U.S. to help those shelters solve problems, improve their operations, and learn in the process.
Medical & Diagnostic Supplies
The shelter program needs funds to diagnose the cause of disease outbreaks and treat medical problems identified in shelter animals.
The shelter program currently operates on a limited-time grant. An endowment would secure the future of the shelter program that provides veterinary training and services to shelters throughout New York and surrounding states.
