Pay for books and supplies this year and travel to and from
veterinary related events without checking the couch for money!
Think about participating in Travel Fund!
Travel fund is the opportunity for you to earn money
specifically for travel to and from internships, externships, and
conferences. Starting this year, you may also use your
monies towards buying supplies and books at the student bookstore
It can be up to several hundred dollars!! It just
depends on the fundraiser you participate in. But it's definitely
enough to help out getting you to and from veterinary related
events/ paying for books/supplies.
Pet Fare: $15.00/hour
It depends on the fundraiser. I.E. Kolache breakfasts, Halloween
Candy Grams, Santa Claws and Paws, Fleece Sales, Valentine's Day
Flowers: monies come from the net profit off of sales of these
items. However, for See Spot Run, monies come from local and
Monies earned are then split between the Chair (typically 40% of
net profits) and the volunteers (typically 60% of net profits are
split between all volunteers).
