Is your child interested in becoming a veterinarian one day? If so, you are in the right place! Our Shelter Vet Camp is designed to immerse students in the world of shelter medicine. 

Students in grades 5-6 will have the opportunity to practice skills used by shelter veterinary staff, such as administering vaccinations, performing blood draws, and listening to animal's heart beat and lungs. Students in grades 3-4 will practice surgery skills on a pretend patient, design a blood model, learn to identify common shelter animal ailments, and more!

Upon completion of the program, each child will receive a certificate to commemorate their experience.

Shelter Vet Camp takes place from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. and is hosted at all three AHS locations.

Camp fee: $55 per child.
