AVMA and AVMF to aid Ukraine’s pets

The American Veterinary Medical Association’s charitable division, the American Veterinary Medical Foundation, has pledged a $100,000 match to aid animals in Ukraine. The match comes after the AVMF will direct a donation of $100,000 from Merck Animal Health to the effort. 

“Many organizations, including veterinary medical facilities, animal shelters and animal rescue groups in Ukraine and neighboring countries, are courageously providing care to people and animals affected by the crisis,” said Dr. Jose Arce, president of the AVMA. “But they can’t do it alone, so we encourage AVMA members and the public to contribute to our relief efforts. Together, we can make a difference and support people, animals and those who care for them.”

Funding will be used to pay for veterinary care, food, and support of local animal welfare organizations. The full (100%) of donations will be sent toward relief efforts. AVMA has requested that their members consider donating to AVMF as well. 

"Merck Animal Health is proud to team up with the AVMF and hope these funds go a long way to protect the health, welfare, and safety of pets in the Ukraine and neighboring countries," said Dr. Christine Royal, Associate Vice President, U.S. Companion Animal, and Equine, Merck Animal Health.
