Squeaky Clean and Smarter Pets

Globe University Veterinary Technology Students Partner with Local Rescues at the PAWS Event

Students in the Introduction to Veterinary Technology and Application of Veterinary Clinical Skills class at Globe University in Green Bay, Wis., volunteered most of their Saturday to assist with dog baths and nail trims along with client education for canines and felines. Kaleena Mikle, Veterinary Technology Program Chair and Jennie Wertel, Veterinary Technology Instructor supervised and organized the service learning project that partnered with Critters Companion Open Door Rescue Oasis.

The students raised $150 for Critters Companion Rescue and Wisconsin Wildlife and provided over thirty free dog baths. Other services that were provided by veterinary technology students included grooming and assistance with vaccinations. Through this project 120 hours of service was provided to the rescues and the community.

“I wanted to take this time and thank the C.V.T. students and staff from the Green Bay Campus that shared their Saturday with us in raising money for Critters Companion the dog bath and nail trim was a hit with the community,” said Eli Raindancer, Volunteer
President at Critters Companion Abrams via Facebook.

Critters Companion Rescue looks forward to working with Globe University staff and students in the future and hopes next year’s event will draw an even larger crowd.
