“I think it is so awesome what they are doing. Everything is so expensive nowadays and unfortunately some people simply can’t provide for their animals anymore so they have to get rid of them. It’s a shame honestly but I’m glad there are people and organizations out there that want to help and are actually doing something about it like what the Veterinary Technology Mobile Vet Clinic is offering. I plan on getting my dog registered, I think everyone who is in a similar situation as I am should. If help is being offered, might as well accept it,” said Christopher Maze an Engineer Major at Sinclair.

Ensuring that your pets are well taken care of is critical for their health. Without the proper
treatment, your pet’s lives could be in vain. Want to still get involved but don’t have a pet? Now you can donate to the vet tech fund here at Sinclair. The Vet Clinic started a scholarship fund with the Sinclair foundation to help with the cost of the program.

This includes a Vet Tech Prep Course designed to help students pass the VTNE (Veterinary Technician National Exam.) Donations also go towards educational field trips, stethoscopes, scholarships, and funding for vaccine clinics and spray/neuter clinics. This will help provide more clinical experiences for students.

For information about registering your pet, or donating to the Vet Tech Fund please email the
department at vettech@sinclair.edu and visit the website.
