WSAVA establishes charitable foundation

The World Small Animal Veterinary Association (WSAVA) has established a new foundation devoted to improving global companion animal care through science and education. The nonprofit WSAVA Foundation held its first board meeting in February and is now identifying a range of potential projects, including:

  • Initiatives to educate veterinarians and the public globally about disease prevention and improvement of health in companion animals
  • Creating standardization projects in key areas of companion animal health and welfare
  • Supporting the development of innovative clinical approaches for the diagnosis and treatment of clinical diseases in companion animals

It is also identifying sources of funding, grants and partnerships with the veterinary pharmaceutical and pet nutrition sectors and other potential donors.The foundation said it would be announcing the final version of its initiatives soon.
