About St Petersburg College Vet Tech Program
St Petersburg College Veterinary Technology Program offers dog and cat adoptions to veterans through a first of its kind partnership with Pets for Patriots, and will help them find their new best friends.
The college holds the prestigious AAHA accreditation, certifying that it meets the highest standards of veterinary diagnostics and medical care. Animals in their care have been rescued from Pinellas County Animal Services, and stay at the college for an average of six to eight weeks for training purposes. No experimental or unnecessary procedures are ever performed on the animals, which are loved by their veterinary technology students. During their stay, the dogs are clicker trained by animal behavior students.
Pets available for adoption through St Petersburg College Veterinary Technology Program are networked through the group’s Facebook page and at offsite adoption events. Veterans interested to meet the dogs may do so at any time by contacting Jessica Rice through the email icon on this page.
Adoption Fees Include:
Basic veterinary exam
FeLV/FIV test (cats)
Microchip for permanent identification
