ABSTRACT
The shelter program at the Mississippi State University College of Veterinary Medicine provides veterinary students with extensive experience in shelter animal care including spay/neuter, basic wellness care, diagnostics, medical management, disease control, shelter management and biosecurity. Students spend five days at shelters in the junior year of the curriculum and two weeks working on mobile veterinary units in their senior year. The program helps meet accreditation standards of the American Veterinary Medical Association's Council on Education that require students to have hands-on experience and is in keeping with recommendations from the North American Veterinary Medical Education Consortium. The program responds, in part, to the challenge from the Pew Study on Future Directions for Veterinary Medicine that argued that veterinary students do not graduate with the level of knowledge and skills that is commensurate with the number of years of professional education.

Mentions: The College obtained its first mobile veterinary unit as a result of Hurricane Katrina. In 2005, Hurricane Katrina created massive destruction on the Mississippi and Louisiana gulf coast. One of the aftermaths of Hurricane Katrina was an increase in funding for animal rescue and spay/neuter along the gulf coast. A grant from the American Kennel Club Companion Area Recovery along with private donations allowed for the purchase of a mobile veterinary unit designed for disaster recovery and spay/neuter (See Figure 1). A grant from the Humane Society of the United States provided funding to expand the shelter program and operate the mobile unit.
