The American Veterinary Medical Foundation (AVMF) has donated $10,000 to help veterinarians and animals recover from Hurricane Dorian.

The foundation’s board of directors approved the donation to GreaterGood.org, a national nonprofit organization working with partners on the ground to deliver emergency supplies, transport, and medical care to animals and humans in the Bahamas affected by Dorian.

The AVMF has been actively assisting in storm relief in the past year. The group donated $10,000 to the Nebraska Veterinary Medical Association (NVMA) following significant flooding in March, as well as $20,000 to the Florida Veterinary Medical Association (FVMA) Foundation after Hurricane Michael.

Further, AVMF has an ongoing disaster relief program offering grants up to $5,000 to help reimburse veterinarians for care provided to animals during disasters. In 2018, it provided $146,000 in disaster relief grants to veterinarians, veterinary students, disaster response teams, and allied veterinary organizations.
