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.
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
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.
