Thank you for your interest in supporting the research of the Animal Welfare Program! Your support goes toward the areas of greatest need in the program and facilitate the development of highly qualified personnel.
You can support the program by donating to the Animal Welfare Fund (G0049) via UBC’s giving website. Contributions here are used to support the greatest area of need within the program.
Gifts have been crucial to the breadth of work done in the Program. Most gifts are used to support area where is no formal program of research funding. For example, gifts have supported:
Amelia MacRae’s research that improved the feeding and health of orphaned harbour seal pups
Anna Drake’s research on improving the raising of mallard ducklings brought to wildlife rehabilitation facilities
Nancy Clarke’s work on reducing stress in dogs in shelters
Jeff Spooner’s study that identified the animal welfare issues and concerns faced by cattle ranchers
If you would like to discuss opportunities for giving, please feel free to contact any faculty member, the Research Coordinator or the Faculty of Land and Food System’s Development Office.
