WHY DOES VIN FOUNDATION EXIST?
We believe a healthy animal community depends on a healthy veterinary community. The VIN Foundation resources help veterinarians thrive so they can help our animals and those who care for them. We’re here to help!
WHO ARE WE?
The VIN Foundation was founded by members of the Veterinary Information Network (VIN) in 2005. VIN is an online community of veterinarians and veterinary students with over 70,000 members worldwide. The VIN community spans every facet of the veterinary profession from private practice and research to academia and public health. The VIN Foundation’s charitable efforts are centered around the belief that a healthy veterinary profession is essential for healthy animal and human communities.
WHAT DO WE DO?
Most foundations give money. We give resources. The VIN Foundation resources support, educate, and mentor veterinarians through their careers, and are backed by hundreds of practicing veterinarians eager to help. All resources are available to veterinarians and veterinary students at no cost. We are regularly updating the resources with the most up to date information.
