“Veterinarian” is usually the first thing that pops into someone’s head when thinking about jobs with animals. But how much do you really know about becoming vet, and did you know there are TONS of other animal related careers? Are you creative? Maybe you’d enjoy a job as a groomer. Good problem solver? Perhaps you could become a great dog trainer. Interested in law enforcement? What about a job as a Humane Officer?
HAWS Animal Career Exploration (HAWS ACE) is a program for teens in 10th – 12th grade to learn about the variety of careers available in animal care. Members will get a chance to hear from speakers working in different animal-related jobs, learn more about HAWS and our mission, and get some hands on experience working with animals.
So how realistic are the things you’ve seen on TV about Veterinarians and Humane Officers? What does it actually take to work those jobs and others? What kind of training do you need? Join HAWS ACE and find out!
Cost is $40 for the school year and meetings are held on one Wednesday a month during the school year, from 6:00pm-7:30pm at the Humane Animal Welfare Society – 701 Northview Road, Waukesha, WI
