SPUR: How the Dumb Friends League and CSU are working together

Apryl Steele, DVM, CAWA will discuss how the Dumb Friends League and Colorado State University (CSU) are working together through the League’s veterinary hospital which will be housed in the Vida building on the Spur campus at the National Western Center. The partnership between CSU and the Dumb Friends League represents an extraordinary opportunity to alleviate suffering in pets while connecting with people who represent a wealth of diversity. Pets provide critical mental, emotional, and physical support to their people. The Dumb Friends League is thrilled to be there when these very pets experience illness and injuries that their family cannot afford to treat. By performing surgeries and exams in view of the public, the League hopes to inspire interest in veterinary medicine and other STEM careers for hundreds of thousands of people.
