Zoetis helps to support FFA, AABP, AAEP
Zoetis announces the return of its Industry Support Program for youth involved in agriculture and veterinary medicine. Zoetis is partnering with veterinarians, animal health suppliers and dealer customers to support students through FFA, the American Association of Bovine Practitioners (AABP) Foundation and the American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP) Foundation.
Through April 30, 2014, a portion of funds from eligible purchases of Zoetis cattle and equine products will be directed to local FFA chapters and/or veterinary student scholarships through the AABP and AAEP foundations on behalf of local veterinarians and animal health suppliers.
In previous years, more than 1,000 veterinarians, animal health suppliers and dealer customers have participated in the program.
For former veterinary student scholarship winner Dr. Megan Hays, who earned her degree from the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine, this support means a continued commitment to the future of veterinarians.
The Industry Support Program and donations are possible only because of the generosity of customers.
“Last year, our customers helped contribute $1.2 million to more than 1,800 local FFA chapters across the country and AABP and AAEP veterinary student scholarships,” Kelly said. “We’re thankful for the continued support and the important work these organizations do to prepare young people for a future in American agriculture.”

Support of FFA and the AABP and AAEP foundations is a component of Commitment to Veterinarians™, a Zoetis initiative supporting veterinarians through training and education, research and development, and investing in the future of the veterinary profession. F
