Our Impact

Founded in 1910, AMC is a non-profit academic veterinary hospital dedicated to providing compassionate and collaborative care to animals and to leading the advancement of veterinary medicine through clinical research and education. AMC relies on the generosity of our donors to sustain those key components of our mission that require philanthropic support: education, research, and charitable care.

2,500+ residents & interns

AMC is the largest postgraduate veterinary teaching institution in the world: over 2,500 residents and interns have trained at AMC.

59,565 patient visits

In 2023, AMC had over 59,000 patient visits, with almost 20,000 patients visiting our veterinary ER.

30 academic publications

In 2023, AMC veterinarians published 30 peer-reviewed articles, books, book chapters, and other publications to generate new veterinary knowledge and advance the care we’re able to provide for our beloved companion animals. 

43 board-certified specialists

Our staff includes industry leading specialists, including New York State’s “Veterinarian of the Year” for 2022 and 2023.

“AMC is certainly busier than anywhere I’ll ever work again, so just managing a day here is an experience that no other resident in the country will get. This place is big and bustling, but I can always get a consult immediately from a senior staff doctor because he or she is just down the hall. This collaborative environment means that we can offer an amazing quality of medicine.”

“If it weren’t for the generosity of AMC’s Monty and Minny Fund, we would have had to choose between our home and our dog Snoot’s healthcare.”
