Our exhibit was created to inspire the next generation of veterinarians, using interactive learning stations to explore topics about animals and their care.

Did you know that celebrity veterinarian Dr. Kevin Fitzgerald also does stand-up comedy? You may have seen him on Animal Planet, or as the opening act for comedy greats such as Dave Chappelle and Joan Rivers. We are so thankful that Dr. Fitzgerald has been a passionate advocate for the Animal Connections exhibit. Not only did he serve as a consultant for exhibit content, he came out to Chicago for the launch of Animal Connections to  give tours, conduct youth programming, and speak to the press about the impact of our exhibit. Our deepest thanks to this true Renaissance man for all of his enthusiasm and support! Did you know that celebrity veterinarian Dr. Kevin Fitzgerald also does stand-up comedy?
