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 ā€“ including in Atlanta, Philadelphia, and Minnesota.

The committee ā€“ which is by invitation-only and volunteer-based ā€“ 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.

ā€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,ā€ 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.
