Terry and friends.
The late Randall B. Terry, Jr. became a longtime friend of the college after his Golden Retrievers were treated at the Veterinary Teaching Hospital.

"Animals give so much to mankind, it’s only fitting that we give back something to them. This new veterinary medical center will help enhance the medical care they receive."

   —Randall B. Terry, Jr.



The Randall B. Terry, Jr. Companion Animal
Veterinary Medical Center

The College of Veterinary Medicine (CVM) has initiated a multi-year project to build the Randall B. Terry, Jr. Companion Animal Veterinary Medical Center. The 110,000 square-foot Terry Center is expected to be a national model for excellence in companion animal medicine. The Terry Center will offer cutting-edge technologies for imaging, cardiac care, cancer treatments, internal medicine, and surgery; will more than double the size of the current companion animal hospital; and will help accommodate the more than 20,000 cases referred to the CVM each year.

The new referral hospital is made possible by a $20 million pledge from the R.B. Terry Charitable Foundation—the largest private gift ever given to North Carolina State University. The North Carolina General Assembly appropriated $38 million for the facility and additional private funds will pay for the remainder of the $72 million project.
