Plaza development at Mosier Hall, located near the entrance to the Kansas State University College of Veterinary Medicine’s Veterinary Health Center, provides an opportunity for us to honor the human-animal bond and pay tribute to your animal companions with a permanent legacy.  We invite you to commemorate your beloved pet within the plaza with personal words of tribute honoring the special relationships you share.  Especially designed for caregivers and pets, the plaza development provides a peaceful environment of reflection surrounded by a waterfall, trees and plants.

Contact Us

Through your generosity and kindness, we can make the plaza at Mosier Hall a place to enjoy for generations.  For details on donation information, please contact the Development Office at the College of Veterinary Medicine at 785.532.4378.
