Globe University-Sioux Falls veterinarian technology student group- SCNAVTA- presented a check to Deb Anacker. Deb owns a nonprofit animal rescue near Centerville, SD.
Globe University’s vet tech program works with Deb’s rescue and many others around the region to provide free health care for the animals and hands on training for students.
SCNAVTA (Student Chapter National Association Veterinary Technicians in America) promotes many fund raisers throughout the year which allows them to make donations to local area rescues and fosters. Deb has traveled many miles and locations to help house and feed unwanted pets. Deb’s devotion to these rescue animals is why our students learn how to provide the proper care to animals and how to use newly acquired hands on skills. These rescue shelters and foster homes are the reason our students are prepared for the veterinary clinic environment when they graduate.
“When shelters and rescues go out of their way to bring us these animals for our students to care for –it makes the students that much more motivated in their learning and willingness to give back to the community,”said vet tech program chair, Kim Sieverding.
“I love working with you guys,” said Anacker. “I drive to Sioux City, Minnesota just about anywhere to rescue animals…I will probably use the money for gas!”
Good job SVNAVTA and Deb for all you do!!
