Pfizer Animal Health raises more than $1 million for FFA chapters and veterinary scholarships

We just got some great news!

Pfizer Animal Health will be contributing $1,052,720 dollars to the National FFA Foundation through their support program.

The program, now in its second year, connects FFA members with local veterinarians in order to help them learn more about the animal health industry.  A portion of purchases from Pfizer Animal Health cattle and equine products will be donated to behalf of local veterinarians to the FFA chapters of their choice.  The funds will help FFA chapters travel to educational and leadership seminars and plan chapter activities.

The total amount raised this year, beat last year’s record by more than $200,000! We are incredibly grateful to Pfizer Animal Health and all of the veterinarians who continue to support FFA. Through generous gifts such as these, we can ensure that all students are given the opportunities they need to grow and succeed.
