The Pet Compassion Centers is proud to partner with Mississippi State College of Veterinary Medicine in developing best practice protocols for our shelter medicine programs. We regularly consult with subject matters experts in developing policies. Our goal is to help our local municipal shelters become their community’s resource centers for pet owners. When shelters partner with us, we provide ongoing support for assessments and medical protocols.
The Pet Compassion Centers values education and maintaining the interest of talented young people in veterinary medicine. Beginning in 2018, we supported the incredible vision of Munford High School Veterinary Science and FFA teams to create and sustain a spay/neuter clinic which has made a huge difference in the community. The students can assist in the spay and neuter of pets from the Tipton County Animal Shelter, Lauderdale County Animal Shelter, and community TNR efforts. One of the goals of this program is to encourage high school students to pursue careers in veterinary medicine and to return to their local communities as veterinary professionals. This program has been very successful and some students who have graduated from this program are pursuing veterinary medicine careers. We are looking to help expand this program and beginning to offer grants to enable these valuable, talented students opportunities to continue their education in the veterinary field.
