Directly help Georgia's pets receive spay/neuter surgery while training the next generation of veterinarians!
Through this innovative collaboration between the Athens Area Humane Society and the University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine's Shelter Medicine Program, senior veterinary students will be trained by our experienced surgeons in high quality, high volume spay and neuter surgery. With this program, students will learn many valuable tips and tricks while gaining the skills they need to prepare them to be active participants in the fight against pet overpopulation for the rest of their careers. The Athens Area Humane Society is a not-for-profit organization serving Athens, Georgia, and the surrounding area. We spay and neuter over 3000 animals each year, successfully helping to decrease pet euthanasia rates in our region. We are committed to finding a solution to pet homelessness and we want to help veterinary students graduate with the skills they need to play an active role!

We have already acquired some of the equipment we need for this new program to provide a great surgical experience for our students, but we still need some specific items before we roll out our new program. We are asking for your help! Every donation, no matter how small, is greatly appreciated! Our animals and future veterinarians thank you for your contribution!
Examples of items needed are an anesthesia machine and a pulse oximeter.
