Why the Ontario Veterinary College?

At the Ontario Veterinary College, a profound love of animals is at the heart of everything we do.

With the help of our generous donors, we’re building a future where all animals can live longer, healthier lives. By leaving a gift in your will, you can help build that future and leave a legacy of exceptional care for animals.

OVC has been improving the lives of animals and humans for more than 150 years. We are the oldest veterinary college in North America, consistently ranked first in Canada and among the top 10 in the world for veterinary science.

A legacy gift will help OVC remain a world leader in veterinary education and animal health care – and make the decades that lie ahead a time of great progress and innovation for veterinary care.

Your gift will:

  • fund scholarships and bursaries for future veterinarians, creating the next generation of veterinary leaders;
  • support ongoing critical research that will address local and global health issues to improve the standard of care for all animals; and
  • help maintain and improve our hospital infrastructure, giving the brightest veterinary minds access to the latest equipment and technology and ensuring world-class excellence in veterinary care.

The love of animals drives us to constantly do better. To look for new ways to diagnose, treat, and prevent disease. To help students further their skills and prepare them for the changing needs of the veterinary profession.

And that’s precisely what you can accomplish for animals with a charitable bequest to OVC.
