About Pet Trust Fund
The Ontario Veterinary College Pet Trust Fund promotes the health, health care and quality of life of companion animals. We support studies and special projects that improve the quality of care pets receive and that lead to advances in veterinary medicine. Our donors say that supporting OVC Pet Trust is a loving way to cherish the memory of a beloved pet, or to celebrate a special animal or animal lover.

OVC Pet Trust helps explore vital companion animal health issues, develop new diagnostic and treatment techniques and examine the human-animal bond. Pet Trust studies range from cardiology to neurology; from orthopedics to ophthalmology.

Over the next five years, the OVC Pet Trust plans to raise 10 million dollars to fund the first animal cancer centre in Canada, a place where clients can be assured that their ailing companions will receive the most advanced and effective treatments available. The clinic will staff and train international leaders in animal oncology - people not only dedicated to the health and well-being of your pet, but to ongoing interdisciplinary and collaborative research that will increase understanding and treatment of cancer in pets, and ultimately benefit human health as well.
