|MVMA Responds to Katrina
In the past week, the nation has experienced the worst natural disaster in our memory. Hurricane Katrina has made us all keenly aware of the devastation and more importantly need for each of us to respond.
The MVMA office has coordinated the calling to active alert the MVRC (MN Veterinary Reserve Corps) members. MVRC volunteers have set up the animal reception center at
The MVMA office has received numerous calls, as I am sure many practices have, regarding how the public can help. AVMA has announced a $500,000 matching gift program to aid animals and the profession in the devastated areas. The announcement of that is on the MVMA website at www.mvma.org/AVMAKatrina.asp.
The Minnesota Veterinary Medical Foundation will also accept donations that will be forwarded to the AVMF and the matching funds gift.
Please also note the following letter received that is asking for your support.
