Shelter Medicine Program

Shelter Medicine Program

Students interact with patients in the Lerner Spay/Neuter Clinic at Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine.
The Shelter Medicine Program at Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University was founded in 2006 with the mission of improving quality of life for shelter animals through the education of DVM students, veterinarians, and para-veterinary professionals.

Luke & Lily Lerner Spay/Neuter Clinic

Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine students perform spay/neuter procedures in the Luke and Lily Lerner Spay/Neuter Clinic.

The Luke and Lily Lerner Spay/Neuter Clinic (LSNC) provides students at Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University with opportunities for surgical training while serving pets in need. Our mission is to instruct veterinary students in the best practices of small-animal sterilization surgeries, to provide free or low-cost services to pets in need from the surrounding community, and to provide the surgical training component for the Tufts Shelter Medicine Program.
