Serving Christ through veterinary medicine

Christian Veterinary Mission (CVM) is a Christ-centered, non-profit organization purposed to walk alongside veterinary professionals who desire to bring glory to God using their professional skills in their own community and cross-culturally. Animals are a bridge to relationships. Whether in a clinic in urban America, a veterinary school in Bolivia, the countryside of Mongolia or serving the Cherokee Nation, relationships are formed over the care of an animal. Trust is built, hearts are opened, and a seed is planted. Find out more about us at
