Your gifts help animals in need

The LSU School of Veterinary Medicine provides emergency services, critical care, testing, and ICU to homeless animals. This campaign helps us continue our mission to heal.

Most of us have had the difficult experience of coming upon a stray animal that is injured or sick. Each year, over 300 such animals needing emergency treatment are brought to the LSU School of Veterinary Medicine’s 24-hour emergency facility by Good Samaritans who care deeply for animals in need. We provide emergency services, critical care, testing, and ICU to these homeless animals who often stay for days or weeks as they heal.

The cost of treating these animals approaches $70,000 per year, a cost we absorb as part of our mission to heal. Funds raised in this campaign are used to offset the cost of treatment for these animals in need.

Your gift will help us care for more injured, sick, and homeless animals in our community. Thank you for helping us help animals in need.
