As part of our elective clinical rotation, our students regularly visit local animal sheltering organizations to assist with medical and behavioral care of the animals at no charge to the organization. The students learn how to manage a population of small animals with unique needs, the shelters consult with experts in shelter medicine, and the animals get veterinary care that otherwise would be limited or impossible – it’s a win-win-win!
Some of the sheltering organizations we regularly partner with include:
- Alachua County Animal Services
- Bradford County Animal Control
- Flagler Humane Society
- Gilchrist County Animal Services
- Levy County Animal Services
In addition, students on our rotation assist with medical care and provide spay-neuter services for the St. Francis Pet Care Clinic.
The Veterinary Community Outreach Program works closely with local animal adoption agencies, providing subsidized spay-neuter and minor surgical services as well as medical consultation for animals belonging to these organizations. We do not provide veterinary services of any kind to privately owned animals.
