Initiative Creates Veterinary Committee to Support Pet Owners and Overlooked Vet Programs

Companions and Animals for Reform and Equity (CARE) has created a new veterinary committee to help support underserved communities and overlooked veterinary programs.Care

The committee is meant to prompt discussions of human and animal well-being inside schools to support underserved BIPOC communities and their pets; develop strategies to support veterinary programs in neighborhoods not served by traditional animal welfare nonprofits or veterinary schools; and advise in the development of CARE Community Clinics helping support under resourced pet owners – including in Atlanta, Philadelphia, and Minnesota.

The committee – which is by invitation-only and volunteer-based – will also advise and support the Dr. Jodie G Blackwell Scholarship Fund, which aims to help further the education of Black veterinary students.

Dr. Azalia Boyd, a double graduate of Tuskegee University, will serve as the committee chair.

β€œEvery day I have the opportunity to touch a very small part of the world and affect the lives and happiness of people and pets,” Boyd said. She is excited to be part of this groundbreaking group, to further her unwavering compassion to build a positive and lasting effect on the world.
