"Penn Vet's students, teachers, clinicians, and scientists spend entire lifetimes providing skilled, compassionate care for beloved pets while relentlessly seeking cures that benefit both animals and humans. They tackle our world’s most pressing challenges such as global sustainability, food security and zoonotic disease. To know I can contribute to their efforts is a responsibility and a joy."

Margaret Leardi, Director of Development for New Bolton Center

"It's a privilege to be surrounded by the very best clinicians, innovative researchers, compassionate and dedicated donors, committed clients and friends, and most importantly, all of these amazing animals. I am immensely proud to work with this dynamic community in our pursuit to revolutionize veterinary medicine and improve animal and human health alike."
