Together we can save lives and stomp out disease!

The University of California Davis Koret Shelter Medicine Program and the University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine Shelter Medicine Program have partnered to create Virtual Consultant: a free web-based tool that enables animal shelters to assess their everyday practices.

We help shelters protect animal health, support animal welfare, and save animals’ lives.
