Unleashing Possibilities Together

So much of what we do is focused on wellness. Whether it be through care for the human-animal bond, incredible basic research on addiction, innovation in education that builds confidence in our students or generating the next big idea around global health.

Cancer Survivor Dog

Give Hope

When you support cancer care at the WSU Veterinary Teaching Hospital, you give hope to those who love their animals. The veterinary hospital currently needs a new Linear Accelerator (LINAC) to provide even more accurate and safe radiation treatment for animals with cancer.

Healthy Animals. Healthy People. Healthy Planet.

We are dedicated to improving the lives of animals and people at home and around the world through enhancing health and well-being. Faculty members in the college’s three departments—Veterinary Clinical Sciences, Integrative Physiology and Neuroscience, and Veterinary Microbiology and Pathology—are accomplished educators, researchers, and leaders in their fields, including veterinary surgery, immunology and infectious diseases, physiology, pharmacology, neurobiology, and clinical practice. The Paul G. Allen School for Global Health brings together top scientists in infectious disease, making the college a leader in solving the global health challenge. In 2010, the School of Molecular Biosciences moved to the college to create a larger group of biomedical research scientists and strengthen existing collaborations.

Our students work with accomplished researchers in highly ranked programs for scientific investigation, clinical specialties, and diagnostic capabilities. Graduates from the college earning degrees in veterinary medicine, veterinary clinical sciences, immunology and Infectious diseases, integrative physiology neuroscience, biochemistry, genetics and cell biology, or microbiology go on to be leading clinicians, diagnosticians, researchers, and professors across the globe.

Please consider a gift to support the College of Veterinary Medicine’s priorities below:

Clinical Care and Teaching Excellence in the Veterinary Teaching Hospital

Make a gift today to the Grateful Client Program

Behind every gift to WSU’s Veterinary Teaching Hospital is a story. A dog learns to walk again. A beloved pet’s life is saved from cancer. A horse receives arthroscopic surgery and goes on to win another race. An eagle is released back into the wild.

Your gift is also a way to honor your veterinarian and the veterinary hospital staff who provide the very best care to yours and everyone’s animals.  

Veterinary Medicine Recruitment Scholarships

Make a gift today to the WSU Veterinary Heritage Scholarship Fund

Scholarships are essential to attract the best and brightest veterinary students.  While our community, our education, and our caring faculty are highly valued, a student’s decision is understandably affected by the cost of education. Recruitment scholarships are often the deciding factor for the most sought-after students, who can, in the long term, help the college attract and retain the best faculty, improve board passing rates, and increase our rankings and reputation. 

The Veterinary Teaching Hospital is also a classroom for your future veterinarian. Residents are veterinarians who have typically completed an internship and are pursuing a three-year residency program for training in a specialty area. Interns are veterinarians who are pursuing a one-year internship for advanced training. And, our fourth-year veterinary students train alongside faculty to complete their medical training. Upon graduation in May, they will be fully qualified to practice as veterinarians! 

Paraprofessional Training and Education

Make a gift today to the Paraprofessional Training and Education Fund

We envision certificate training programs combining the college’s strengths in innovative veterinary medical education and WSU’s long-standing strengths in global online learning. By partnering with veterinary health care professionals at all levels who have expertise in continuing education, internships/externships, foundations, etc. we can enhance and leverage training and education programs for veterinary paraprofessionals.

The certificate programs will be focused, affordable and combine online learning with hands-on training with veterinary students to encourage teamwork, communication and effective delegation of responsibilities at the skills development phase of their careers. These competency-based programs would offer an avenue for workforce development of animal professionals at all levels. Paraprofessionals would generate revenue with personalized, expanded care—working with a single clinic or consulting for several veterinary clinics within a veterinary network.

All competency-based certificate programs would emphasize communication and focused subject matter. 

Biomedical Research

Make a gift today to the Fundamental Research Fund

Discoveries by our biomedical researchers are the foundation for medical innovations that prevent and treat diseases in people and animals.  Research conducted in neuroscience, microbiology, immunology, biochemistry, cell biology, and genetics provided the basis for the development of medical technologies, therapies, vaccines, and medications.  Scientists also conduct research in epidemiology, infectious disease, integrative physiology, and veterinary clinical and translational sciences that improve public health and animal health.  


There are several ways you can give to the college including matching gifts, creating an endowment, or gift planning.

For questions about giving, call (509) 335-9516 or email development@vetmed.wsu.edu.
