Annual Report explores program achievements

2011-2012 Annual ReportMaddie’s® Shelter Medicine Program has released our Annual Report for July 2011 through June 2012.

Looking back

A year in Maddie’s® Shelter Medicine Program brings many adventures, from working with new students in our exciting on-campus offerings to conducting vital research on pressing shelter health issues.

This year we were delighted to graduate five more students with Maddie’s® Certificate in Shelter Medicine and launch a new initiative that will bring Maddie’s® shelter medicine education to veterinarians and students across the country.

Shelter pets need the attention and skill of veterinarians – to heal them, to cure them, to keep them healthy, and to stop the cycle of reproduction.  We are here to build a force of skilled shelter veterinarians who will work tirelessly for our communities’ shelter pets.

We invite our donors, supporters, students, alumni, and friends to download the report and learn more about the programs you make possible.

Thank you to our supporters and partners

Our work with veterinary students and animal shelters across the country would not be possible without the generous support of Maddie’s Fund®, The Pet Rescue Foundation and our other charitable and corporate partners.  We’re honored to work with you on behalf of shelter pets!

Looking back at the past year’s work for shelter animals and the veterinarians who care for them, I can only grow more excited for the future opportunities for our field and for Maddie’s® Shelter Medicine Program at the University of Florida.


We thank our partners, supporters, and colleagues for being part of this important work.
