STARKVILLE, Miss.—In 2013, the Schraeder sisters in Petal anxiously awaited acceptance letters to Mississippi State’s College of Veterinary Medicine. Both Kate and Sarah Schraeder had applied with hopes of being in the university’s CVM Class of 2017. Eventually, good news came the Schraeders’ way.
“I don’t think my parents have ever been happier than when we got in at the same time,” Sarah Schraeder said. “Kate and I were nervous one of us would get in but the other wouldn’t, but our parents were terrified. They cried when we got in, and I don’t know what they’ll do when we graduate.”  Read More...

Humane Ethics and Animal Welfare


MSU CVM’s Humane Ethics and Animal Welfare Program is designed to improve animal and public health. First initiated in 1995 to provide veterinary students with spay/neuter experience, the shelter program has grown to be comprehensive in nature. Veterinary students have the opportunity to work on one of two mobile veterinary clinics that visit Mississippi shelters 3-4 days each week. The program offers 125 slots to interested students. Students, with faculty supervision, spay and neuter unowned animals while gaining valuable hands-on experience. Students also assist shelters with improving health of animals before the animals are adopted into homes. They provide physical exams, identify and treat common parasites, identify and treat diseases, and improve biosecurity and basic animal care.

Students increase their surgery and diagnostic skills, and they gain valuable experience in the skills relevant to major problems in animal shelters. CVM’s shelter medicine program prepares our graduates to become shelter-medicine educated professionals. After graduation, they take their skills to new communities, further improving the lives of homeless animals by providing exemplary care and service.
The impact that the shelter medicine program has on CVM students, the community, and shelter animals is immeasurable. Please consider making a gift through Hail State Giving Days today!
