Vet For a Day

VFaD_LogoWithSpaceThe 2018 Vet For a Day program is filled. Please check back for information regarding our 2019 session.

Coastal Humane Society is very fortunate to have a full-time veterinarian on staff, Dr. Mandie Wehr.  Dr. Wehr studied shelter medicine while in veterinary school, and has been Coastal Humane Society’s veterinarian for the past five years, serving the thousands of animals that come through our doors.

Vet for a Day provides an opportunity for your child to spend four hours in our clinic with Dr. Wehr and her 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 Dr. Wehr and other trained professionals. This is a great opportunity to expose your child to a potential career in veterinary medicine.

With the recent addition of the Mobile Surgery Unit to our organization, we are now able to offer the Vet For a Day program at both our Edgecomb shelter and our Brunswick shelter. Please note that Tuesday sessions will take place at Lincoln County Animal Shelter, located at 27 Atlantic Highway in Edgecomb, and Friday sessions will take place at Coastal Humane Society, located at 30 Range Rd in Brunswick.
