Globe University Partners with Local Shelter to Provide Animal Care

LA CROSSE, Wis. (Sept. 10, 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. Animals will be spayed or neutered and undergo other medical procedures at the campus on Friday, Sept. 12, 2014, from 8:30 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. Approximately 16 students will assist certified vet tech faculty with surgery by performing tasks including physical exams, dental cleanings and extractions if necessary, blood work, calculating drug doses and administering necessary vaccines. This is the sixth consecutive quarter vet tech students have had the opportunity to participate in this applied learning project. The media is welcome to attend.
