Vet Tech & Other Veterinary Support Careers Electric Dog Fence DIY Scholarship

For several years in a row we had the honor of hosting our first Veterinary & Pre-Vet Scholarship. It was a true honor for us to be able to help a needy student in a way that most scholarships normally can’t. Our goal is to provide a deserving student the opportunity to have some financial relief that will allow him or her to better focus in their studies and be able to better serve humanity, in particular our best friends. This year we want to offer a similar opportunity

This year we want to focus on vet techs and other vocational career paths that support the work done by vets.
