#1 Animal-Welfare Medical Program Launches in TX

Houston SPCA has partnered with a state university to create the nation’s most comprehensive veterinarian program.

Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences has teamed up with the Houston Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals to educate veterinarian students on animal-welfare issues, specifically neglect, trauma, and cases of animal cruelty. The animals to be studied extend beyond dogs and cats and include horses, donkeys, native wildlife, as well as exotic and farm animals. The Houston SPCA is the only shelter in the US to tend to all the different animals at one facility, and reports investigating more than 9,000 incidents of animal cruelty per year. “As a leader in animal welfare, both nationally and in our own community, the Houston SPCA is honored to partner with Texas A&M … [to] provide students with an unparalleled opportunity which should serve as a national model,” Houston SPCA president Patricia Mercer tells khou.com.
