Fostering Education and Training Canines in Housing
Open to a limited number of students within the Pre-Vet LLC, this program provides the opportunity to explore and learn more about the service animal industry, assist with the training of service dogs, and volunteer with a local service animal provider. Past students have provided short-term fostering, hosted, and trained their own service dog in training.
All supplies, food, and veterinary care are provided by the program. Participants are required to attend several training sessions while they are working with the service animal. The ability to attend off-site training sessions may be necessary. If not selected for the FETCH program, students will still be eligible to participate in the Pre-Vet LLC.
This program is housed in the same residential community as the Pre-Vet LLC in Bailey Hall on the St. Paul campus. Students selected for the FETCH program will live in a 4-person 2-bedroom suite. Contact Housing & Residential Life staff for details.
