Farming communities are in desperate need of large animal veterinarians.
Many farm animals are unable to receive prompt care due to the lack of veterinarians that provide care for livestock animals like goats, sheep, pigs, chickens, cows, etc. In order to combat this problem, Don’t Forget Us…Pet Us has created the MudPuddle’s Veterinary Scholarship to support students looking to pursue careers in large animal veterinary medicine. This scholarship will honor MudPuddles, a very special pig at Don’t Forget Us…Pet Us, who touched many hearts.
High school seniors, undergraduate students, and graduate students are eligible to apply if they have a vested interest in caring for all types of livestock. Students majoring in veterinary sciences for farm animals or in large animal sciences are eligible to apply. In your application, write about why you are studying large animal veterinary studies and what types of animals you plan to primarily care for.
