The School of Veterinary Medicine has many charitable funds established by generous benefactors to help animals in need of care. “Compassionate Care Funds” were first established at the UC Davis veterinary hospital in 1990. These funds (formerly known as Angel funds) help defray costs for families to treat their sick or injured animals, and also to assist with the costs of treating shelter, stray and wild animals brought to the veterinary hospital. These funds not only help the patients and their families, but also allow for the cases necessary for our faculty to teach the next generation of veterinarians. You can help continue this tradition by considering a tax-deductible donation to the “Compassionate Care Funds.”

Lost Fishing Gear General Support

What We Do

The California Lost Fishing Gear Recovery Project, a program conducted by the Karen C. Drayer Wildlife Health Center, helps fishermen recover hundreds of crab pots annually. The success of the project has paved the way for the Dungeness Crab Task Force, a group of representatives from local fisheries, to propose a permanent gear retrieval program. The fishermen and the Wildlife Health Center are working to remove lost crab fishing gear—which poses an entanglement threat to marine mammals—from the ocean, and sell it to the original owners under what they hope will be an economically sustainable model for future cleanups.

How You Can Help

While our ultimate goal is for all fishing gear recovery to be fully financed and sustained by the industry, our project currently depends on donor support. Your donation allows us to maintain our current program and encourage expansion to new ports in California, with the potential for global impact. We thank you for supporting loca

UC Davis Fracture Program for Rescue Animals

For many cats and dogs, they face their time of greatest need when homeless. Millions of companion animals enter shelters across the country, but more than half will never leave. Some may have been found as strays, while others may have been injured as victims of cruelty. Unfortunately, an injury, such as a fracture, becomes a common barrier to adoption. But with the proper treatment, a fracture is often a correctable medical problem. Providing needed surgery for these rescued animals will help them to overcome this barrier and go on to become pets of loving families.

Our Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital is at the forefront of performing the most complex surgical procedures in veterinary medicine. Through the hospital’s Fracture Program for Rescue Animals, we are able to share our expertise with shelters and rescue groups to help injured animals.

Veterinary Institute for Regenerative Cures

Support the Veterinary Institute for Regenerative Cures

Over the past 7 years, faculty at UC Davis have committed significant time and effort into transforming the School of Veterinary Medicine into a national leader for veterinary regenerative medicine. We have established laboratory techniques and animal models that have been used to study regenerative therapies for veterinary and human medicine. We have characterized equine, canine and feline stem cells isolated from different tissues (i.e. fat, bone marrow, umbilical cord blood and umbilical cord tissue) with a focus on adult-derived mesenchymal stem cells. We have developed collaborative, interdisciplinary “disease teams” that include basic research faculty and clinical faculty that focus on “bench to bedside” translation of stem cell therapies. Additionally, we have built strong collaborations with faculty in the School of Medicine, College of Engineering (Biomedical Engineering) and College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences (Animal Sciences).
