  • Compassionate Care Fund (formerly known as Angel Fund)
  • Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital Small Animal Clinic

    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.” Continue to giving site
