Top Dog 2020 Journal

AMC’s annual Top Dog Gala will take place on Tuesday, December 8, 2020. This year’s event will be particularly special as we will host a unique and exciting virtual celebration that will honor AMC’s Healthcare Heroes for their extraordinary efforts to continue caring for beloved pets during the COVID-19 pandemic. Proceeds from the Top Dog Gala, AMC’s preeminent annual fundraising event, enable us to pursue our mission of providing compassionate and collaborative care to animals and leading the advancement of veterinary medicine through innovative clinical research and education. Funds raised during the gala also support our Compassionate Programs and Charitable Funds, which provide free and subsidized care for pets whose owners may not be able to afford such care. In 2019, AMC provided over $3 million in charitable care through these programs. We hope you will join us for this special virtual celebration!
