About the Perpetual Pet Care Program

Established in 1996, the Perpetual Pet Care Program is a comprehensive program designed to provide animals with loving homes once an owner is no longer able to provide daily care. Enrollment benefits include:

  • Performing an extensive search to locate a loving home;

  • Providing for your pet’s lifelong medical needs;

  • Monitoring of the adoptive home; and

  • Designating your charitable interest.

For more than a century, the College of Veterinary Medicine has provided care for animals. This expansive network will support every aspect of your pet’s adoption and life.


Enrolling your pet

Deciding how best to care for your pet can be difficult, but enrolling your pet in the Perpetual Pet Care Program ­is easy. KSU Foundation staff members who work with the College of Veterinary Medicine will guide you through the process. This includes obtaining detailed information about your pet’s home life and coveted daily routines.

Your financial gift will first provide for your pet’s lifelong medical needs. After your pet passes away, the remaining funds will support an area of the college most meaningful to you.

There are numerous funding options: cash, bequests, charitable gift annuity, charitable remainder unitrust, gifts of securities, life insurance and real estate. Please contact the College of Veterinary Medicine’s Development Office for details.

Tax deductibility will be determined in accordance with IRS, state and federal regulations.
