Pfizer Animal Health announced the return of the FFA and American Association of Bovine Practitioners (AABP) Foundation Support Program and the addition of the American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP) Foundation Support Program. Since its inception in 2008, Pfizer Animal Health and its customers have contributed more than $3.6 million to local FFA chapters and veterinary student scholarship funds.
A portion of purchases from qualified Pfizer Animal Health cattle and equine products made between Feb. 1 and April 30 will be donated on behalf of local veterinarians and animal health suppliers to the local FFA chapter(s) of their choice, the AABP Foundation – Pfizer Animal Health Veterinary Student Scholarship Fund or the AAEP Foundation.
In previous years, more than 1,100 veterinarians, animal health suppliers and dealers across the country have participated in the FFA/AABP Foundation Support Program, which is part of Pfizer Animal Health’s Commitment to Veterinarians, an initiative supporting veterinarians through training and education, research and development, and investment in the future of the veterinary profession.
Support for the FFA as well as the AABP and AAEP Foundations helps promote the future of agriculture, states Julian Garcia, group director, U.S. Cattle and Equine Marketing, Pfizer Animal Health.
“Our support to all three organizations helps honor the assistance and encouragement many of our team members at Pfizer Animal Health received when they were students,” Garcia says. “Many of us at Pfizer Animal Health have been directly involved with these organizations, and now it’s our chance to work with our veterinary clinic, dealer and distributor partners to give back. In turn, we are supporting the next generation of our industry.”
