3 Presents for Pet Lovers
By Scholle McFarland
This holiday season, why not fill the pet lovers on your list with cheer while also supporting Oregon’s only college of veterinary medicine? OSU’s Carlson College of Veterinary Medicine has made it easy by creating a colorful, customizable certificate you can print at home to hand your loved one on Hanukkah or tuck beneath the Christmas tree. (Download it at https://vetmed.oregonstate.edu/sites/vetmed.oregonstate.edu/files/ccvm_giving_certificates.pdf) Here are three ideas:
1. Honor a companion they’ve lost
2. Pay it forward for them
3. Help the people who help our pets
If your friend or family member loves animals, what’s a better gift than direct support for the next generation of doctors that will care for our pets? A donation to the Veterinary Medicine Scholarship Fund supports student scholarships. Go to ForOregonState.org/pets and select the fund from the drop‑down menu.
