The T.S. Glide Foundation - in recognition of the invaluable support provided for the education of veterinary students, and for the health and well-being of unwanted horses. For more than 25 years, faculty, residents and students have participated in the health care of the 90 horses, donkeys and other animals residing at their rescue facility just outside of Davis.

“We are grateful for the partnership with the T.S. and K.D. Glide Foundation,” Dean Michael Lairmore said. “The trustees are clearly devoted to animals, advancing veterinary medicine and providing learning opportunities for hundreds of our veterinary students and residents.”
