Shelter Vet Camp

Is your 5th or 6th grader interested in becoming a veterinarian one day? This three-hour program is designed to immerse students in shelter veterinary medicine. 

Students will have the opportunity to practice skills used by shelter veterinary technicians and veterinarians, such as administering vaccinations, performing blood draws, and listening to animals' heart beat and lungs. Students also will visit the shelter’s surgical suite and exam areas to see vet techs and veterinarians in action (including in-progress surgeries). 

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

Dates and locations:

Camp is from 9:00 a.m. - 12:00p.m. and is $55 per child.
