Veterinary Technology students and members of the Student Chapter of the National Association of Veterinary Technicians in America recently gathered donations for the Fairfield Humane Society of Lancaster. 

The items donated include canned and dry pet food, toys, bed, cages, treats, and paper towels. 

The student vet tech chapter is designed to work with those individuals who are seeking to become veterinary technicians, but who are still enrolled in school.

It promotes activities designed to assist students in attaining a high degree of professionalism and leadership skills.

Because the student chapter is a professionally recognized part of the national association, it is also highly respected by vet techs, veterinarians, and other veterinary professionals.
