Get ready to Spring Forward and join our 30-day fundraising challenge to help us raise $125,000.
Saturday, May 22
10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Attention high school students. Did you know that there is a critical shortage of veterinary technicians nationwide and not enough candidates to meet the growing demand? Veterinary technicians are the backbone of veterinary medicine; they are the equivalent of nurses in doctors’ offices and hospitals. They handle animals, administer vaccines and medicine, assist in surgery, and so much more.
Students interested in exploring the field of veterinary technology are invited to join experts for a two-hour workshop focusing on education and training, shelter medicine, and emergency hospital management.
If you enjoy helping animals and are interested in a fast-paced career, where no two days are the same, consider learning more about becoming a veterinary technician.

The cost for the workshop is $25. However, no student will be denied access to participate because of the inability to pay. For information on financial assistance, please contact [email protected].
St. Hubert's Animal Welfare Center's Furry Friends E-Venture Days for campers grades 4th- 8th, April 1st & 2nd
Meet the founder of Susie’s Senior Dogs who will share about the joys of adopting a senior pet and how they bring so much joy and meaning to our lives. Next, put your dog training skills to the test under the guidance of one of St. Hubert’s dog trainers who will guide you in teaching your dog some fun tricks as you work together as a team. Round off the morning with a virtual tour of St. Hubert’s “A” kennel to see where our K9s reside while waiting for their forever homes. Finally, learn why play and enrichment are essential to a dog’s well-being and how to make a cool tug toy using an old t-shirt. We will be sure to have a barking good time!
Meet Sterling “Trapking” Davis who will introduce campers to his best feline pal and their TNR RV which allows them to do life-saving work helping community cats all over the country. Next, drop by St. Hubert’s kitten nursery for a meet and greet with some sweet kittens and to learn about the important work being done there to help the most vulnerable kittens. Finish out the day by learning how you can help outdoor kitties by building a cat shelter using a large rubber tote to provide them with a cozy home and protection from the elements. It will be the purrrfect way to end the week!
