How to Become a Shelter Veterinarian

Categories: Blog, Humane Education

Each semester, Marin Humane welcomes a group of students into our Student Service Clubs. These animal-loving students spend the semester learning about Marin Humane become animal advocates through their work. Middle and high school students in the Junior and Senior Roots & Shoots clubs develop a community service project to guide their semester. These clubs are part of the national Roots & Shoots program started by Dr. Jane Goodall.

For this semester’s project, students decided to invite a variety of speakers from different animal-involved organizations to teach us what they do. You can watch new installments of these virtual interviews every week and more from the Student Service Club blog.

Today our Senior Roots & Shoots club interviews Dr. Anne Miller, one of Marin Humane’s veterinarians. Dr. Miller will tell us about her journey to becoming a vet and gives recommendations for those considering entering the field. You can learn more about Marin Humane’s veterinary services by visiting our Veterinary Services page.
