Veterinary Technology Animal Housing & Student Learning Facility Campaign
There is no doubt our society is filled with animal lovers. So much so we expect the same state-of-the-art health care for our animals as we expect for ourselves. In the exciting field of veterinary medicine, Veterinary Technicians provide support to veterinarians, biomedical researchers and scientists. From administering anesthesia to assisting in surgery, Veterinary Technicians can be found in practices, zoos, laboratories, and pharmaceuticals.
The TCTC AVMA accredited Veterinary Technology Program is a shelter medicine facility and one of only two in the state. We house large dogs, small dogs, and cats from Anderson, Oconee and Pickens County animal shelters each semester. Students are supervised by full-time Licensed Veterinary Technicians as well as Veterinarians, providing basic to extensive health care, spaying and neutering, socializing and training to the shelter animals over the course of months. This hands-on experience allows our students to graduate with key experience that provides an edge when entering the field.
