How Animals Help Us During the COVID-19 Pandemic

Pets can provide company and comfort in the face of social isolation and high anxiety

Loyal Companion Society: Rene Gibson’s Story

I believe it is important to support an institution like Cummings School that educates veterinarians to treat both farm and companion animals with the best possible veterinary care in the most compassionate and dignified way. I am proud to be a Loyal Companion.

It is a wonderful feeling to help animals and the veterinarians who care for them. Being a part of the Loyal Companion Society is an honor, and I am glad I can do something to make the lives of animals better—just as Melissa and Beatrice have made mine.

Cummings School personifies the leadership that I followed through my years as a student and continue to follow as an owner of a veterinary clinic. I share the school’s optimism for the future, and it is an honor to be considered a Loyal Companion at my alma mater.

Loyal Companion Society: Lynda MacDonald’s Story

Giving to Cummings School year after year as a Loyal Companion makes me feel good. It is clear that as an academic veterinary medical center, the staff at Foster Hospital have access to treatments that are not readily available elsewhere and the veterinary students are able to learn about them. I am happy to help if there is a way I can contribute to advancing treatments that will ultimately benefit countless other animals and their human families.
