Shelter Medicine and Community Outreach

Future Vets Helping Future Pets

Established in 2015 with the goal to produce more "practice ready" veterinarians by building clinical skills in surgery, physical examination, diagnostic/therapeutic plan development and client communication. These foundational skills are performed as service-based curriculum which provides medical and surgical care to those with limited access.
Currently the K-State Shelter Medicine and Community Outreach Program includes:
  • Mobile Surgery
  • Community Outreach
  • Shelter Consultation
  • Graduate Student Programming
Over 30 Regional Partners
Over 40,000 Surgeries
900 Students Trained
Over 5,000 Families Served
