We are the Veterinary Society, and despite the name, we welcome any student with an interest in animals, no matter their degree! We understand that for a lot of students leaving home means leaving behind beloved pets and companion animals and it’s our goal as a society to provide a place that like-minded people can meet and make new friends. Last year we had the opportunity to volunteer weekly at Shrewsbury DogsTrust, and this year we would like to do the same as soon as covid-restriction and DogsTrust allow, so lookout for news surrounding this on out instagram or our facebook. We also organise Guide Dogs Days, where Guide Dogs UK come and talk to us about the organisation, doubling as a fundraising opportunity for the charity. Our sponsor this year is the Linnaeus Group, which is a partnership of highly respected veterinary practices across the UK, comprising of some of the best clinicians and nurses in the profession; including specialisms in small animal, farm and equine. They have offered to do a series of talks on various veterinary/animal industry related topics the first of which will be on the 16th November, so keep a look out for more information on these that will be coming soon. Established in 2018, we stand out on campus for the unique experiences that we offer including the aforementioned dog walking, as well as discounted excursions to zoos, safari parks, and, best of all, CRUFTS Dog Show. This year is a bit different because of Covid-19 and the restrictions that are in place but we are looking into making sure there are still plenty of opportunities and events this year. Our exec is a great team and we work to ensure a fun, safe, and welcoming environment for all of our members.
