Michigan State University College of Veterinary Medicine is a recognized leader in canine and feline cancer research and treatment. Drs. Foster and Smith wants to support Michigan State University (MSU) in their efforts in these areas. We are doing this by donating to the University a portion of the profits from the sale of every bag or can of dog or cat food purchased from Drs. Foster and Smith. The goal?
The commitment of Dr. Foster and Dr. Smith to help pets and the veterinary profession is consistent with what they have quietly done over the years, providing special services at no charge and donating over $750,000 toward advancements in veterinary medical care or when crises have struck.
Some Past Projects by Drs. Foster and Smith:
- For fifteen years Drs. Foster and Smith offered a free spay and neuter program at their clinics.
- When a local animal shelter needed a facility, Drs. Foster and Smith donated the land for the building.
- When Hurricane Katrina struck New Orleans and animals were separated from their owners, Drs. Foster and Smith sent $100,000, a semi-load of pet crates and food valued at another $30,000 and paid to send one of its staff veterinarians to Louisiana.
- When 9/11 happened, Drs. Foster and Smith sent $50,000 worth of aid, and items like booties for rescue dogs to protect their feet.
Drs. Foster and Smith is committed to raising at least $50,000 annually to help find cures for canine and feline cancers. For those who purchase dog or cat food from Drs. Foster and Smith, know that your purchase is providing funds to Michigan State University to help with that research.
