Our Foundation

Our Mission

Headquartered in Austin, Texas, the Texas Veterinary Medical Foundation was established in 1978 as a 501(c)3 charitable and philanthropic non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the well-being of animals and strengthening the human-animal bond in partnership with Texas Veterinary professionals. TVMF is supported through tax-deductible donations and gifts from the public, veterinarians, and pharmaceutical and veterinary supply industries.

The phrase, ‘Caring for animals, advancing the profession and serving the people,’ captures the Texas Veterinary Medical Foundation’s mission.
