    July 10 is Dr. @Lila Miller Shelter Medicine Day!

    Dr. Miller is known for her trailblazing leadership and purposeful dedication to the field of veterinary shelter medicine.
    If you are one of the millions of people that have adopted a dog or cat over the last three decades, you have Dr. Miller to thank. Dr. Miller transformed the lives of countless pets, developing the first veterinarian-written guidelines for shelter animal care, which are now used in shelters across the country to ensure the humane treatment of shelter pets. She created and taught the first shelter medicine class in the U.S. at Cornell University in 1999, co-founded the Association of Shelter Veterinarians (ASV) and co-edited several shelter medicine textbooks.

    Help us celebrate her and all of the incredible work she's done as the "Mother of Shelter Medicine" over the years!
