“Those of us who love animals are so fortunate to have Cummings School. As clients and friends, you know firsthand that it is a world-class veterinary hospital, school, and research facility, but it is also a community dedicated to the well-being of the animals who bring so much to our lives. That is what inspires me to donate to the Cummings Veterinary Fund.”

Jane Boyle, owner of Kelsey (who passed away in September, shortly after this photo was taken).

The education of compassionate veterinarians is made possible by your annual gift to the Cummings Veterinary Fund. To make a contribution, visit go.tufts.edu/vetmagspring2018.
