The Consult Service at the Animal Cancer Center is an important outreach effort to help both pet owners and veterinarians all over the US and sometimes from other countries as well. In fact, we answer approximately 3000 such calls on an annual basis! We do not charge for this service but are appreciative of the donations that help to sustain this valuable program. In 2010, Linda and Brian Pardo, wanted to make a gift to help support this service as it helped several of their personal dogs and dogs who are housed at their rescue in Texas called Happy Endings Dog Rescue. This gift has established Carmen's Fund in memory of Carmen, one of their dogs who was helped by the consult service initially and then came to CSU for treatment for her cancer.

We would like to thank the Pardo's for the generous lead gift towards our goal of an endowment to permanently support this valuable service. If you would like to help support the Consult Service, please make a contribution to Carmen's Fund.
