  • I Want to Get Involved...

    The strength and health of our pets, agriculture, research, families, and communities depends upon a healthy, vibrant, and strong veterinary profession. Veterinary medicine spans areas including food, animal and meat inspection, academia and research, international health and public awareness, as well as cutting-edge surgery, diagnostic testing, and medical treatments for every animal species. Supporting and advocating for the individuals within the veterinary profession is the heart and soul of the VIN Foundation.

    The VIN Foundation needs your support. We need to expand our programs to reach all veterinarians including those at the beginning and end of their careers. We need to develop new programs to continue to support practicing veterinarians. We need to advocate for all veterinarians and the challenges confronting the profession: student loan debt, excess capacity, and legal challenges grow.

  • I Want to Support a Cause

    Every once in a while a cause comes along that aligns with the VIN Foundation’s mission and values. The VIN Foundation collaborates with these causes by helping to raise funds through our established giving process, with 100% of the donations going directly to the cause.

    Dr. Sophia Yin Memorial Fund
    A memorial fund has been created by Dr. Sophia Yin's family, dedicated to preserving the legacy of Dr. Yin, encouraging education in Low Stress Handling techniques, and improving the relationship between animals and humans.

    Dr. Yin’s family has asked that the fund also be used to support the Vets4Vets program to help veterinarians facing business and compassion fatigue pressures find the help and hope they need to face the challenges that consumed Dr. Yin. Learn more. 
