 Organizations asked to donate their time

The American Veterinary Medical Foundation is offering members of the veterinary profession the opportunity to give back to their community by hosting an Our Oath in Action event.

Through this volunteer-driven outreach program, the AVMF coordinates veterinary-related service projects across the country. 

The Foundation is currently seeking project plan proposals from organizations and individuals for the 2014 Our Oath in Action program. State VMAs, veterinary colleges, veterinary technician groups, and others associated with the profession are invited to submit project proposals.

Sample project ideas would be a shelter cleanup event, pet health fair, or the launch of a pet food pantry.

Six projects will be selected. Representatives from the six selected projects will attend a special training event where they will be provided with professional assistance in planning, promoting, and coordinating their events, which will take place on Make a Difference Day in October 2014.
Proposals will be taken until Dec. 31; submissions should be sent to Cheri Kowal, AVMF program manager, at ckowal@avma.org. For more information, she can be reached at 847-285-6691.
