Memorial & Honor Gifts

Memorial and honor gifts are a meaningful way to express sympathy to a friend on the loss of a loved one or cherished animal companion, to thank a veterinarian for their exceptional care, to honor an individual who loves and values animals, or to celebrate a special birthday – animal or human!

We offer the following opportunities for you to recognize the important people and animals in your life while at the same time supporting our efforts to improve animal health.


For a minimum suggested donation of $10, we will send a personalized card:

  • To the recipient of your choice notifying them of your gift in their honor.
  • To the family of your choice notifying them of your gift in memory of their loved one.

Donations can made be made online or by downloading an online order form and mailing it to the school.
