WHY DONATE WITH YOUR HEART, YOUR MIND AND YOUR DOLLARS??
I am President-elect of the AHVMF because I know that the heart of this organization is in the right place. The AHVMF is the only organization dedicated to funding humane veterinary research into the efficacy of holistic methods of healing. Educating through research (“REALSEARCH”) is our only hope to fully integrate a holistic viewpoint into the hearts and minds of all veterinarians.
One Medicine – or my motto, “just use what works”.
We must prove how well our holistic methods work. We already have reams of data, countless successful cases, hundreds of thousands of grateful pet parents, but the information must be gathered and presented to educate skeptical conventional veterinarians. We have interested researchers, impressive products and modalities, a curious public, and the media at our door. We need funding for projects, strategies for education, and innovative thinkers to carry out research and present the results – which will educate and change minds in our profession.
We are a hardworking group of holistic veterinarians, not huge corporations, food companies or hospital conglomerates. We may not have the backing of pharmaceutical companies or the easy money for research from corporations or universities, but we have YOU.
We have our amazing family of support -- from you, our clients, our colleagues, our industry.
We may seem small, but we are mighty healers, and we have a powerful story to tell.
Help us tell that story, help us to research it, educate it and sing it from the mountaintops.
We are here for you.
You are here for us.
And together we can change the way veterinary medicine is practiced in this country.
One patient, one dollar, and One Medicine at a time.
Thank you for your support, it means a great deal to us all,
Barbara Royal, DVM, CVA President, AHVMF
