The Student Chapter of the National Association of Veterinary Technicians in America (SCNAVTA) gives students the opportunity to partake in volunteer activities that are beneficial to the community and to their resumes. In return for students’ hard work in SCNAVTA, special trips are planned. One such trip that SCNAVTA members have recently participated in was the trip to the Wildcat Sanctuary. The sanctuary is a very private organization that is not open to the public, so being able to visit is a rare and revered privilege for which I am deeply grateful. Visiting the wild cats that call the sanctuary home is a very humbling experience that one should make every effort to partake in.
The fundraisers that give you eligibility for these special trips take place once you donate your time or even items for our fundraisers and earn hours towards these trips. Our trip for Winter Quarter is yet to be determined, but we would like as many vet tech students to join SCNAVTA as we can get. Contact Alesha Schutz (firstname.lastname@example.org) or any one of the SCNAVTA board members for more info.
