Background
The Loudoun Campus Veterinary Technology Club is holding this event as a public service to reduce the incidence of rabies and allow better recovery of pets when lost or stolen. The event also serves as a fundraiser for the club’s community outreach efforts with such programs as the Community Holiday Coalition’s Pet Pantry. Loudoun County Animal Care and Control and the Loudoun Veterinary Association are generously providing resources to help make the event successful.

Veterinary Technology Program
Graduates of NOVA’s veterinary technology program are prepared for a post-graduate national exam which leads to licensure as a veterinary technician. In addition to the traditional on-campus instruction, an innovative online program is available.
