The Animal Cancer Care and Research Center represents hope for a brighter future in cancer care. The new center capitalizes on a strikingly rare opportunity to integrate researchers across disciplines investigating animal and human health, which leads to better quality and quantity of life for our animal companions and their owners.

To discuss how your gift can make an impact on the future of cancer care and research, contact Maggie Meikle, associate director of development for major gifts, at or 540-231-4259 or reach out to a member of our development team.
