This spring, we are launching our second annual campaign to raise $30,000 by the end of May.  Your gift will enable us to foster and grow these important programs.  The MVMF supports animal health and education through many avenues, we want to provide additional money to students pursuing a career in veterinary medicine and to worthy animal health programs.  The future of our profession depends on us.

Will you care?  We need your help – show that you care today by contributing to this important campaign with a donation of $25, $100, $250, or $500.  Click on the Donate button today.

Update, because of the generosity of those who gave last year to the 1st Annual Campaign, we were able to offer an additional MVMFcares $5,000 student scholarship and raised several others by $500.  We also helped update the Surgery Suite State Fair exhibit with new flat screen monitors and a digital system.  This exhibit educates hundreds of thousands of people during the fair on the importance of pet population control.  So thank you for making last year’s campaign a success!

Thank you in advance for caring for our profession and for the future of animal health in Minnesota.  We are so grateful for your support!

Sincerely,

Brittney Brock, DVM

How We Help

The MVMF has helped numerous animal organizations reach their goals

• “The MVMF helped us move into the new Miracle of Birth Center building and continues to fund the yearly operations..  This exhibit is so beneficial in helping to educate the public about agriculture and the miracle of animal birth. “ MOBC Co-Chair, Dr. Mary Olson

Basic Animal Rescue Training (B.A.R.T.) for firefighters

• “There are tens of thousands of emergency responders in Minnesota. BART has proudly trained over 4,500 first responders and BARTs goal is to offer life saving BART training to every first responder.  The  MVMF gave BART grant money to start up this important program and to help continue their dream. “ Dr. Janet Olson

• Thank you so much for the Academy/Pomeroy Scholarship!  I greatly appreciate the honor and financial assistance as I pursue my DVM/PhD goals.    Thank you for your support of my studies, the college and the veterinary community of MN and I look forward to continuing to be involved with the  MVMA and MVMF.  -Dr. Susannah Lewis

• My career goals are to practice food animal medicine in rural Minnesota, helping to ensure the health and safety of our food supply.  As I look to the future, I realize I have several semesters of studying ahead of me, as  well as a significant financial responsibility.  I greatly appreciate the MVMF Margaret Pomeroy Scholarship and will continue to work diligently to make the most of my educational experiences..  Andrew A. Kryzer, Class of 2015
