  • The Vet Tech program has three wonderful young kitties who need forever homes! They are all about 6-7 months of age, spayed or neutered, fully vaccinated, and are litter box trained. We prefer that they are adopted to inside homes. They will be ready to go home the afternoon of November 16th and must have homes by the 21st, since there won’t be students on campus to care for them over the Thanksgiving break. They all have great personalities!
