Introduction: The Connecticut Veterinary Medical Foundation (CVMF) is the charitable and service arm of the veterinary community of Connecticut. It supports education, scholarship and service programs that improve animal and public health in Connecticut. CVMF leadership by dedicated veterinarians facilitates a scientific approach to animal issues and is what makes CVMF unique among animal oriented charities.

Vision Statement: The Connecticut Veterinary Medical Foundation aspires to be a safety net for Connecticut's domestic animals.

Mission Statement & Explanation: Through its programs CVMF strives to:

-promote disaster preparedness and response for domestic animals;
-promote the human - companion animal bond;
-promote the profession of veterinary medicine in Connecticut;

Disaster preparedness and response promotion is conceived broadly and is served by both the CTSART and Companions-in-Crisis programs. Through the provision of leadership and support to these programs, CVMF in partnership with public and private agencies develops, administers and promotes animal welfare activities throughout Connecticut.

CVMF promotes the Human-Companion Animal Bond through all its programs. We build our programs with the intention to serve both people and animals in celebration of their special partnership. We also promote recognition of individual animals, particularly those animals which save lives, prevent injury, or enrich the human spirit through therapy or service programs.

CVMF promotes the veterinary medical profession through support of academic institutions engaged in research as well as through educational outreach to the public and the profession. The CVMF publicizes the profession's leadership activities in these areas.
