Pet Loss Support

Each year, the Center receives many calls from people grieving the loss of a beloved feline friend. In addition to being unique creatures, cats are endearing, loyal, and affectionate companions who quickly become true family members. The anguish felt when a beloved pet dies can be excruciatingly painful. At times like this, the emotional support and empathy of others can be deeply comforting.

Memorial Giving Programs

Losing a cherished cat can be as emotional as losing any other family member. The Cornell Feline Health Center Memorial Giving Programs offer you an opportunity to show your compassion towards a grieving friend, family member, or client during their time of loss.

Gifts to the Feline Health Center help to assure that we can continue our mission of improving the health and well-being of cats everywhere. What better way to remember a client's, friend's, or family member’s pet than with a gift that will provide help for cats today and hope for them tomorrow.

When you provide a gift and contact information for your friend, relative, or client, we will send a condolence letter to inform them of your kindness.
