Globe University Partners with Local Shelter to Provide Animal Care

LA CROSSE, Wis. (May 28, 2014) – Globe University-La Crosse veterinary technology students are teaming up with Crawford Area Shelter for Animals to provide care services in order to make the animals more adoptable. Approximately six animals will be spayed or neutered and undergo other medical procedures at the campus on Friday, May 30, 2014, from 8 a.m. – 1 p.m. Since spayed and neutered pets are more likely to be adopted, the animals will be returned to the shelter with a better chance at finding a home. The students will assist certified vet tech faculty with surgery by performing tasks including physical exams, blood draws, calculating drug doses, administering anesthetic drugs, intubating, anesthetic monitoring, dentistry, nail trimming, ear cleaning and micro-chipping. The media is welcome to attend. Please contact Naomi McDonald, Director of Communications at or 651-332-8269.
