Animal Welfare Patrons
TODAY'S LEARNERS. TOMORROW'S LEADERS.
SCAW provides veterinary students a safe space to pursue academic excellence and secure ideal careers. Thus, our Patrons play an important role as mentors, models and contact persons for students who are interested in pursuing a profession in animal welfare.
WHAT OUR PATRONS SAY
DR. BONNIE BEAVER
Veterinary medicine covers so many areas that opportunities to contribute to animal welfare exist in several ways. Take advantage of those things that interest you.
Continue speaking up for animal welfare in any venue and in whatever area you choose to specialize.
DR. ANJA RECKENDORF
Do internships and externships in your area of interest, get experience in the field you want to work in, and follow your dreams and goals. The path is not always easy or rewarding, but it is worth following your passion since it might pay off in the end.
DR. ANNE FAWCETT
Join your student and professional associations, and get involved early. This is a great way to learn more about applied animal welfare science, as well as proposed changes in legislation into which you can have an input.
DR. BRENDA BONNETT
Change in animal welfare is dependent on human behavior change. If you want to be a 'big picture' person, you need a broad background of education, skills, creativity and experience; an inquiring spirit and an open mind.
