Maddie's® Shelter Medicine Program at Cornell


What Makes Us Unique

The Maddie’s® Shelter Medicine Program at Cornell provides direct medical and behavioral care for homeless animals. By training a new generation of veterinarians and shelter staff to address the unique challenges of keeping shelter animals physically and emotionally healthy, we are ensuring a greater impact on the overall health of homeless populations.

As our graduates fan out across the country, they bring their skills to new communities, further reducing disease and suffering. We are committed to improving the lives of homeless animals by increasing the numbers of shelter medicine-educated professionals who can provide exemplary care and service.
