SCNAVTA Raises Money for Local Animal Rescues

Johnson College’s Student Chapter of the National Association of Veterinary Technicians (SCNAVTA) raised money for local animal rescues.

Students in the organization sold Gertrude Hawk chocolate bars both in person and online during the 2022-23 school year. Through their fundraising efforts, the organization raised $1,000 for both the NEPA Pet Fund & Rescue as well as the SPCA of Luzerne County.

Johnson College’s Veterinary Nursing program works closely with these local rescues to provide care to animals while obtaining hands-on learning opportunities.

The National Association of Veterinary Technicians in America (NAVTA) is a dynamic community of credentialed veterinary technicians dedicated to advancing the profession of veterinary nursing through advocacy, awareness, and professional development. The student chapter of the organization (SCNAVTA) enables students to experience the responsibilities that go along with being a member of a profession.
