"Take Care of the Health of Domestic Animals”: Penn Vet answers the call to support agriculture and animal welfare

Online exhibit on the origins of Penn's School of Veterinary Medicine in supporting and continuing commitment to agriculture and animal welfare

The University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine can trace its origins to the aspirations of members of two societies committed to agriculture and animal welfare – the Philadelphia Society for Promoting Agriculture and the Pennsylvania Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. The School’s ongoing commitment to animal productivity and wellness is notable in the accomplishments and careers of its deans, faculty members, and alumni. This exhibit highlights just a few of Penn Vet’s historical contributions and connections to these missions.
