Shelter Vet Camp

Is your child interested in becoming a veterinarian one day? If so, you're in the right place! Our Shelter Vet Camp is designed to immerse students in the world of shelter medicine. Upon completion of the program, each child will receive a certificate to commemorate their experience. 

Shelter Vet Camp is hosted at our Golden Valley, Coon Rapids, and Woodbury locations

Grades 3-4 will practice surgery skills on a pretend patient, design a blood model, learn to identify common shelter animal ailments, and more.

Grades 5-6 will have the opportunity to practice skills used by shelter veterinary staff, such as administering vaccinations, performing blood draws, and listening to animals' heart beat and lungs.

Grades 7-8 will take a deeper dive into common shelter illnesses and work with veterinary staff to develop a treatment plan unique to each animal. We will also learn about parasites, the danger of germs, and much more.
