This small charity help raise funds for Queen's Veterinary School Hospital at Cambridge University; a non-for-profit hospital which works to help animals in need. Since 1495, they have been helping injured and ill animals, providing education for veterinary students through the University of Cambridge Veterinary School and carrying out cutting edge research into animal illnesses.
The University of Cambridge is known for providing outstanding education, and that’s certainly true when it comes to their veterinary students. They offer excellent facilities, tutor support and training to create the top veterinary professionals for animals in need. As well as training their students, the Queen's Veterinary School Hospital cares for a variety of animals in need with small animal, equine, farm animal and diagnostic laboratory facilities.
Caring for so many animals with state of the art equipment can often be costly, which is why they appreciate all the support they get. Through a variety of fundraising campaigns, they have been able to get to where they are today, with a complete Farm Animal Unit, a clinical skills centre and nine small animal consulting rooms. However, with everyday care costs, updated equipment and new diagnostic techniques they are always in need of support.
As they are not for profit, they need vital funds to help continue the diagnosis and treatment of the thousands of animals they care for every year. As well as the care for sick and injured animals, they need support for the facilities to teach veterinary students with up to date equipment. All donations go to help future veterinary professionals and care for ill animals. Find out more about their work by visiting https://camvet.vet.cam.ac.uk/.
