A lifesaving memorial Program benefitting both the clients and students of the Texas Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital.

The Small Animal (dogs and cats) Fund, created by Mrs. Capper Thompson, was established as a memorial for Chris Stehouwer, a Texas A&M University student and animal-lover, who was killed in a tragic accident.

Mrs. Thompson knew this fund was the perfect way to help both sick animals in need and provide training for veterinary students. She realized there was little educational value in Texas A&M University veterinary students euthanizing pets that could otherwise be treated, so she established this remarkable tribute.
