To Prospective Exotic Vets

While we all love our domestic animals dearly, there is something to be said for the appeal and intrigue exotic animals possess. Their brilliant colors, anatomical diversity, and unique vocalizations inspire wonder and awe. Wouldn’t it be a truly amazing job to protect and care for the rarest animals in the world? This is a stellar opportunity for all PVC members with an interest in exotic animals to join us on 1/31/15 to participate in a behind the scenes tour of the Honolulu Zoo’s Vet Clinic, as well as participate in assisting making toys for animal enrichment. Hope to see you there!

Fundraising @ Panda Express Again!

FUNDRAISER FOR: Equine 808 Horse Rescue

PURPOSE: To raise money to change the horse stall flooring from mud to rock. Horses can contract thrush, the rotting of the frog of the hoof from constantly standing in wet and muddy stalls. These conditions can also cause horses to slip and injure themselves. The current stall flooring is just earth, so it is difficult to clean, allowing urine and feces to accumulate.

WHERE: Panda Express (Paradise Palms)

HOW: Print or show an electronic copy of the fundraiser flyer as you checkout from Panda Express! THIS IS A MUST!!It is attached at the bottom of this post.

WHEN:  All day 12/1/14

POINTS?!1 point for participating in this fundraiser! Please bring your receipt or a photo of the receipt for proof of participation at our next meeting!

*More fundraising opportunities can be found on our new “Fundraising” tab at the upper right hand corner of this website*

******Flyer will be attached when available******

For new students who are interested in joining our club or returning members who want to continue the fun, feel free to stop by our first meeting of the semester on September 3rd at 6:00pm. We will be passing out required sign-up paperwork, collecting club dues ($20 for the semester, $30 for the year), listening to Lori Morimoto of Ross University, so this will be an awesome opportunity for all those interested in attending there.
