The Pierce College Veterinary Technology Program held its annual pet adoption event on May 5-8, 2014. Held in conjunction with National Pet Week, the pet adoption event was concerted by the program to find adoptive homes for the dogs and cats that have been used in veterinary technician student training over the past academic year.
Veterinary Technology Program students set up an adoption table on the 4th floor of the Cascade Building next to the cafeteria in the Fort Steilacoom campus. Anyone interested in adopting an animal must sign up in person at the adoption table during the designated times. All of the animals are spayed or neutered, current on all vaccines, and have ID microchips.
There is a $20 transfer of ownership fee for each animal. Individual profiles of the animals available for adoption are listed to the right. Detailed questions about individual animals or the adoption process will be answered by personnel at the adoption table.
