Vets in Training
Join us for our popular Vets in Training Program!
This program is designed for the animal lover and future Vet, Veterinary Technician or Vet Assistant! We offer programs for three age categories, ranging from 7 - 14+.
Children learn about a variety of topics, tour the shelters, learn from medical professionals, and have fun while doing it!
Sessions are 5 weeks long, once per week for 2 hours. We offer the program at both our Kitchener and Stratford locations.
