MADISON, N.J. (November 19, 2010) — Pfizer Animal Health has donated $25,000 through the American Veterinary Medical Foundation’s (AVMF) Animal Disaster Relief and Response Fund to help the many animals, producers and veterinarians affected by the recent Colorado wild fires.
Hundreds of animals have been killed, harmed or displaced, and many of the families, producers and veterinarians caring for them also have lost their homes or livelihoods during this natural disaster. Others have generously donated their time, facilities and supplies to provide shelter or health care to these animals.
Pfizer Animal Health’s donation will reimburse supplies used in the health care of animals, and will help relieve some of the costs of rehabilitating facilities and livelihoods of veterinarians and producers. This support will reduce gaps in care and provide peace of mind to veterinarians related to their patients and practices.
