WYCA Fundraiser 

NEWTech Veterinary Assisting students are hosting a fundraiser for the YWCA. Our Spokane YWCA is the only local domestic violence shelter that can house pets with their owners. My students are raising monetary donations to provide veterinary care for the injured animals.

Six local veterinary clinics are serving as drop-off locations for donated pet items. Those clinics are Cat’s Meow Feline Veterinary Clinic, Hunter Veterinary Clinic, Indian Trail Animal Hospital, Legacy Animal Medical Center, Mt. Spokane Veterinary Clinic and Union Animal Hospital.

Pets that come into the shelter are any pet - from cats and dogs to reptiles, birds, and hamsters. Donated items needed would be new pet beds, bowls, leashes, collars, cages, carriers, crates, new toys, bedding, etc. 

Donation days end Friday. Monetary donations can be made directly through NEWtech Prep in the business office or online at
