A.V.E.S.S: The Auburn Veterinary Education Supply Service Inc.
AVESS is a non-profit organization founded by veterinary students at Auburn University's College of Veterinary Medicine in the 1970s. AVESS operates in the best interest of the AUCVM community and profits from sales are returned as donations to AUCVM.
Examples of these donations to AUCVM include CVM academic scholarships, veterinary medical equipment for the college and hospital, technology equipment, reference textbooks, and conference stipends to students. To date, AVESS had donated more than $100,000 to AUCVM to enhance learning for students.
The donations are made possible through the sales to veterinary medical alumni, students, faculty, and friends of AUCVM. As as student, by purchasing your veterinary supplies and books from AVESS, you are supporting the AVESS mission.
The AVESS store is located in the Veterinary Education Center Lobby at Auburn University's College of Veterinary Medicine.
Currently AVESS supplies a variety of merchandise which includes:
- Veterinary supplies
