Hurricane Katrina–Helping those who cannot help themselves.

Penn’s Veterinary School has developed a series of steps for individuals who wish to volunteer, which are available at www.vet.upenn.edu/alumni/katrinaresources_dean.htm. If you have any questions about volunteering, please contact Dr. Gail Smith at (215) 898-6678 if you are a veterinarian, and Barry Stupine at (215) 898-4161 if you are a technician. As announced by President Gutmann, Penn faculty and staff interested in volunteering for organizations involved in hurricane relief efforts may be granted up to 3 consecutive weeks of paid administrative leave.
