The goal of the AAFP is to advance the field of feline medicine. This objective could not be achieved without the dedication and efforts offered in various ways by AAFP volunteers. You can assist in the development of the association by volunteering in multiple ways to advance the mission by offering your time, talent and skills. Some examples include writing for one of our various publications, assisting in conference planning, participating on advisory or guidelines panels, contributing to feline welfare issues, taking part in AAFP leadership or reviewing veterinary focused material and content.
The AAFP would like to thank our many volunteers who dedicate their time to an association they believe in. Thank you for your dedication, leadership and expertise which have helped us to accomplish our goals. We appreciate your time and acknowledge your dedication to feline medicine.
Guidelines Committee - The primary intention of publishing Practice Guidelines is to help the veterinary community provide uniform and optimal care for feline patients, to educate cat owners about optimum medical care for cats, and to increase the standard of feline healthcare.
Feline Welfare Committee - The primary purpose of this committee is to create temporary and permanent relationships between Feline Practitioners and other academic, humane, and professional organizations in order to promote communication and cooperation. The function of this committee is to examine feline welfare issues and develop responses and Position Statements when appropriate.
Task Forces - The AAFP's Task Forces are short term volunteer opportunities that are established to accomplish the goals of a specific objective. Once those goals have been met, the task force is completed. As task forces are created and continually change, we would like to thank all of the volunteers that have served on various task forces.
