The UW School of Veterinary Medicine’s building expansion campaign, Animals Need Heroes Too, is the most important endeavor we will undertake in the next three decades.
The project will double the size of our small animal hospital, enhance our Morrie Waud Large Animal Hospital, increase our wet lab space by one-third, and triple our infectious disease research laboratory space, among other significant improvements.
And you can be a part of it.
For more than three decades, we have been pushing the limits of animal and human health, from training the best in the field and providing cutting-edge clinical care to developing new medical treatments and fighting pandemics. We consistently rank in the top 10 among all schools of veterinary medicine in the nation. We have graduated over 2,500 veterinarians since our first class in 1987. With your support, we can continue to lead.
WHETHER YOU LOVE ANIMALS OR INNOVATION (OR BOTH), WE NEED YOUR HELP.
Thank you to Wisconsin’s agriculture-related businesses, associations, and producers for their support.
Built to see 12,000 annual patient visits, our hospital now sees more than 26,000, leading to longer wait times.
GRANTS AT RISK
New research dollars have increased 70% in the last five years, but we’ve run out of room to work on critical projects
SCARCE LEARNING SPACE
Our students do hospital rounds while crowded in hallways and lack small group collaboration areas.
