About Us

The Humane Society Veterinary Medical Association (HSVMA) was formed as a home for veterinary professionals who want to engage in direct care programs for animals in need and educate the public and others in the profession about animal welfare issues.

HSVMA Rural Area Veterinary Services (HSVMA-RAVS), is our primary direct care program. We are also actively involved in advocating for better public policies for animals and advancing humane alternatives in veterinary education.

Our Mission

To protect and advocate for animals while providing leadership and service opportunities that support a humane veterinary profession.
