About the Center

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. Mrs. Stevenson

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.

We invite you to visit the center located on the Texas A&M campus, adjacent to the College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences. Please let us know in advance, so that the director of the center or a representative can be available to talk with you. For your convenience, we have provided a map.
