In Support of Large Animal Care and Clinical Services
The nation's largest veterinary medical center of its kind and a world-renowned treatment center for horses, New Bolton Center is the 687-acre rural campus of the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine in Kennett Square, Chester County, Pa.
The Center's George D. Widener Hospital for Large Animals provides routine care, sophisticated diagnostics and treatment for horses and food animals. More than 6,000 patient visits are made annually at the hospital. In addition, about 20,000 patient visits are made annually through the William B. Boucher Field Service.
At New Bolton Center, major breakthroughs by biomedical scientists have included in vitro fertilization in cows, development of botulinum antitoxin and total parenteral nutrition for foals and calves. With the continued generous support of its Friends, New Bolton Center will remain at the forefront of research concerning animal and human health problems.

Restricted vs. Unrestricted

"Unrestricted" funds are donations that are available for the nonprofit to use toward any purpose. Unrestricted funds usually go toward the operating expenses of the organization.
