Major gift helps launch Canine Health Center
A $30 million gift from Margaret and Richard Riney has endowed and named the Cornell Margaret and Richard Riney Canine Health Center at the College of Veterinary Medicine to improve the health and well-being of dogs through world-class research, outreach and engagement with dog lovers.
The transformational gift accelerates the center’s launch and endows funding critical for advancing canine health-related research and innovations.
“We were inspired by the college’s plans for a new Canine Health Center,” Margaret Riney said. “The ability to bring diverse expertise in canine-related research – from across the college, and across the university – under one umbrella, is a great way to catalyze the research process.”
