Good Samaritan Fund
WSU veterinary students started the Good Samaritan Fund in the mid-1990s to help animals in need of special care, but whose owners could not afford treatment. The college is grateful for their initiative, and for the generous donations of many caring individuals who support this fund. Good Samaritan funds are only awarded to treat animals at the Veterinary Teaching Hospital at WSU.

Dr. Herbert E. & Pamela A. Mueller Good Samaritan Endowment
The distributions from this fund shall be used to support the care of animals who are either ownerless or whose owners cannot afford to pay for their care due to circumstances beyond their control. Small animals should be given priority when distributing funds. Wild animals (both large and small) may be treated with these funds. And, a teaching opportunity is not a requirement for the use of these funds.

People Pet Partnership
People-Pet Partnership (PPP) is a public service program within the Center for the Study of Animal Well-Being at the College of Veterinary Medicine at Washington State University. PPP exists to research and educate the public about the human-animal bond and its applications. Just as importantly, the PPP works to promote the humane treatment of companion animals. Contributions to PPP help support research and programs that use animals to improve people's lives in a variety of populations.
Pet Memorial Program
The WSU Pet Memorial Program is a way for you to offer meaningful comfort to those who have lost an animal companion or for those who want to make a lasting memorial of their own. Visit the Pet Memorial Program website for more information.
