There is a shortage of veterinarians in the United States, resulting in many pet owners needing help to provide adequate care for their pets. In addition, many children need a basic understanding of pets and how to interact with animals. This research project aims to connect children with animals to help promote careers in veterinary medicine while providing children the opportunity to learn how to interact safely with animals. Another goal of this project is to give students the option to talk to a veterinarian to learn more about the veterinary profession.
