About the Center
Welcome to the
Stevenson Companion Animal Life-Care Center, a privately funded,
state-of-the-art animal care program designed to provide
personalized care in a home-like environment.
Your pets, as friends and members of your family, depend on you
for lifelong care. Our program is designed to provide that care for
your pets in the event that they are left behind.
The Stevenson Companion Animal Life-Care Center provides the
physical, emotional, and medical needs of companion animals whose
owners are no longer able to provide that care. Clients of the
center include pet owners who want to assure their pet's future
prior to entering a retirement home, being hospitalized for an
extended period, or predeceasing a pet.
The center was established by the Texas A&M College of
Veterinary Medicine in 1993 at the suggestion of Dr. E. W. "Ned"
Ellett, former head of the Small Animal Clinic at Texas A&M
University. Dr. Ellett's dream became a reality with generous
donations from the Luse Foundation and Mrs. Madlin Stevenson. Mrs.
Stevenson said she chose to support the center because, "Animals
are especially important to the elderly; this center is dedicated
to them and their pets." Mrs. Stevenson, a life-long animal lover,
passed away in September of 2000. Her 4 cats, 7 dogs, pony, and
llama came to reside at the center at that time.
