A bit about our beneficiary:
The mission of Angels in Armor Animal Rescue Fund (AAARF) is to provide financial relief to those member students or faculty members of the who opt to rescue un-owned sick or injured companion animals in need of emergency or critical care. AAARF encourages Good Samaritan behavior in our community to save the lives of animals that would otherwise be euthanized and provide educational opportunities for SVM students in the clinic and the classroom.
