Welcome to the ASV
The Association of Shelter Veterinarians was originally founded as a grass roots group of several dozen shelter veterinarians looking for a means to network. We have now grown into a formal organization consisting of over 750 member veterinarians and 22 student chapters from all around the globe.
Our goals are to advance the practice of shelter medicine, to be a resource for dissemination of information, and to support the ongoing study of veterinary medicine in a shelter environment. We encourage participation from full time shelter veterinarians, as well as veterinarians working in the shelter environment on any level. We are always interested in new members and new contributions to our effort.
