Melissa Zizek, Kelsey Dolen and Madison Williams wrote an awesome article about potentially toxic items for your beloved pets that can be found in your home! Check out their full article below to stay informed and look for their piece to be published in the Fairview Post this month.
Taking in these animals gives our AHT students the opportunity to experience the care of animals at all ages but also lets them experience the care for newborn kittens and puppies as well as being able to follow them through their series of vaccinations and deworming allowing them awesome practical experience.
Currently our GPRC AHT department has three puppies and five kittens in their procession, who are all looking for new permanent homes.
All of these adorable furry bundles of joy have had their vaccines and in most cases, are already spayed or neutered.
Now, let’s get to the fun part and meet these adorable animals.
Pictured with the puppies are first year AHT students, Sabrina Fagan (left) and Genevieve Milner (right).
These black and white puppies in order from left to right are male, female and male. They are currently 5-weeks old, have been dewormed and are getting their first vaccines next week.
The puppies are owned by In the Woods Animal Rescue. The GPRC AHTdepartment took on these little pups and their mom for In The Woods Animal Rescue to help out and to give the students the opportunity to experience caring for newborns dogs.
These little pups will be ready to go home the week of December 11 and might we add, will make the perfect Christmas gift. These three are pretty shy but sure like to snuggle.
As for the current kittens on our Fairview campus, the department has five left out out of the original 13 which means eight kittens have already found their permanent homes!
Let’s introduce you to the five remaining kittens.
Meet Spike. He is 7 months old and a black and white domestic, short-haired, neutered male. Spike is up to date on all vaccines and deworming. He is our shy guy who is finally coming out of his shell. He’s the type of kitty that doesn’t like a lot of commotion and really just loves to curl up on the couch with you and chill.
Next up… nanananana, Batman! Batman is black and white with a couple black marks on his nose much like Spike. He too is a 7 month old neutered male up to date on all vaccines and deworming. He is much more outgoing than his brother, Spike. The AHT department likes to classify him at the happy medium between Spike and our next up kitty, Shroedinger!
Shroedinger!! Oh this boy is our resident trouble maker. He is so darn cute you just cant get upset with him. He is full of energy and would keep any little girl or boy busy for hours. He is also a 7 months old neutered male. Mostly black with white feet, chest and tip of his tail.
Now onto our ladies…
Little orange Petrie. She is such a cutie. Youngest of the bunch only 6 months old. Domestic short-haired. Still needs to be spayed but can be booked into the clinic after Christmas. She is quite the snuggler. Students are often seen with her curled up on their lap.
Last we have miss Glitz. She is a busy girl who is full of energy. She is spayed and ready for her new home at 7 months olds and full of love.
If you or someone you know is interested in taking one of these adorable furry friends home to their forever home, please contact Tiffany Duncan through our GPRC Animal Health Technology department at 780-835-6707 or by email at email@example.com
Yesterday, was National Pet Day, so naturally we honoured Neos. The adorable orange ball of fur that hangs out at our GPRC Fairview Library.
National Pet Day is a chance for those of us who own pets to show them how much we love them. So here’s some love to our beloved kitty, Neos.
Neos has been in the library for 14 years and is named after the library computer system. He was abandoned and found on our GPRC Fairview campus before being brought in to our Animal Health Department to get cleaned up. His personality led quickly to the decision that he should become a permanent resident at the library.
Neos loves hanging out with the students, many of whom are missing pets at home.Neos gets the most visits around exam time, as he’s the perfect companion for some stress relief.
Stop by our GPRC Fairview Library and say hi to our favourite kitty. You can also follow his Facebook page!
