2018 ALABAMA VETERINARY MEDICAL FOUNDATION SILENT AUCTION Please consider donating items to the ALVMF’s first Silent Auction being held in conjunction with the Southern Veterinary Conference in Birmingham, AL August 3-5, 2018. Founded in 2003, the Alabama Veterinary Medical Foundation was established to assist veterinary students and veterinary technicians by providing scholarships and endowments. Over the years, the Foundation has developed animal welfare programs, and supported various other existing programs such as the Alabama Spay Neuter Program that has contributed over 1 MILLION dollars back into the veterinary community! The foundation also has a disaster relief fund and a fund to help offset the costs of life-saving procedures for family pets who would not otherwise be able to afford treatment. All of the Foundation programs contribute to the well-being of animals and enhance the human-animal bond.
