Veterinary Externship Program
WCVC is a program of Shelter from the Storm Animal Rescue, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. As a teaching facility, WCVC offers hands-on experience for training veterinarians and 4th-year veterinary students through our Veterinary Externship Program. This means that, occasionally, we host training vets and 4th-year veterinary student externs in rotations to gain surgical experience. By utilizing our services, you understand and agree that a training veterinarian and/or 4th-year student extern may participate in and/or perform spay/neuter surgery on your pet under the direct supervision of the Attending Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM). Note: An average of 5% of our surgeries are performed by participants in the Veterinary Externship Program; this means that 95% of our surgeries are performed by the Attending DVM.
**If you do not consent to participation in this program, you must seek spay/neuter services at another veterinary clinic.**
