Vet For a Day

The 2019 session of Vet For a Day has been filled. Thank you for your interest in this program and please check back for information about next year’s sessions.

Midcoast Humane is very fortunate to have two full-time veterinarians on staff as well as a whole clinical team to make sure our animals get the medical care they need.  Dr. Mandie Wehr is our Director of Shelter Operations, and specialized in shelter medicine while in veterinary school. She has worked with thousands of animals since joining our team in 2012. Dr Pare has been with Midcoast Humane for approximately one year, and is quickly making an impact on the health and wellness of shelter animals in Midcoast Maine. 

Vet for a Day provides an opportunity for your child to spend four hours in our clinic with one of our veterinarians and the clinic staff to learn about veterinary medicine and observe surgeries, intake exams, and more.

Sessions take place from 10am to 2pm, and include an introduction to sheltering, a tour of our facility, and hands-on time in our veterinary clinic with our veterinarians and other trained professionals. This is a great opportunity to expose your child to a potential career in veterinary medicine. Ask us about scholarship opportunities! All 2019 Vet For a Day sessions will take place at 30 Range Road in Brunswick. 

Students must be between 12 and 18 years old to participate. Please note that each session is limited to one student to provide the best possible learning opportunity for your child.
