It is very important for children to learn how to take care of their animals and veterinary science.With this objective in mind, the Virginia Beach SPCA in Virginia Beach, Va, has come up with a program, wherein it gives an opportunity to a group of kids to be “Vets for a Day”. This program includes, the bringing of children into an animal hospital, and allowing them to wear the lab coats and teaching them the real skills which is required for all the vets to know and understand.
Kathy Shambo who is the education director of VBSPCA ventured this project.There are almost three or four times in a year, when the school is called off for teacher-in-service days. It is on such days that the kids are given this opportunity to visit the hospital and teach them various ways to save lives.
