What’s happening @ RASKC

Celebrating National Vet Tech Appreciation Week Oct 14-20


RASKC recognizes the vital work performed by Licensed Veterinary Technicians (LVTs) at our shelter.  With over 5,000 animals that arrive at RASKC each year, the LVTs perform essential work on animal intake; assisting in spay/ neuter and other surgeries; caring for sick, injured, abused, and neglected animals; promoting animals’ foster care; arranging for animal transportation to specialty Vet Clinics; prepping animals for special-adoption events; and working with volunteers.

Lori Mason (left) has been working here for over 18 years. While always an extremely hard worker, Lori’s service has been extraordinary this year when at least one, and sometimes two, of her LVT co-worker positions were not filled for months. Lori also works as RASKC’s Foster Care Coordinator.

We are extremely pleased that Courtney Robblee (right) has recently been hired as an LVT at RASKC. See the related article below. And we are delighted that Colleen Wayne (middle) has taken some time from her special-duty assignment in the Medical Examiner’s office to help train Courtney. What a team!
