Pet Adoption

Thank you for considering pet adoption through our Veterinary Technician Program, in partnership with area humane societies. The Pet Adoption Program is a community service provided by the Wisconsin Student Association of Veterinary Technicians. Adoption fees are collected on behalf of, and go directly to, the shelter that the animal originated from. All of our animals are housed at Truax Campus. Please note, you must be at least 18 years old to adopt a pet through our program.
