Shelter admissions of free-roaming animals and former pets surged across Florida in 2021.
Congratulations to all 34 amazing shelter medicine students at Maddie's Shelter Medicine Program at the University of Florida!
Meet two graduating students of the UF College of Veterinary Medicine class of 2022.
Thanks to a collaboration between the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine and Alachua County, students at the college have gained an opportunity for hands-on learning in the field of shelter medicine and the college has enhanced the offerings of its shelter program to better serve the local community.
While in the Maddie’s Shelter Medicine Program, interns work with shelter medicine faculty on campus.
The call to action is this: we must recognize our nation’s animal shelters are in crisis.
After reviewing the published literature and field experience, the Shelter Medicine Academic Consortium has issued new guidelines recommending elimination of quarantines for animals exposed to COVID.
Shelters are struggling with medium and large dogs. Everybody is asking, “What do we do?”
The grant will help revolutionize the status and well-being of companion animals.
The animal welfare community is still dealing with challenges as another year comes to end.
