Event activities

Since its inception in 1973, MCC's Vet Tech program has been a cornerstone of excellence, shaping dedicated individuals into skilled professionals committed to the well-being of animals. Over the past five decades, MCC is proud to have over 1,400 successful graduates who have remarkable careers in veterinary care.

Our students' contributions have extended far beyond their immediate professional endeavors. Through their tireless efforts, thousands of homeless animals have found loving homes, thanks to their work in rescuing dogs and cats from local shelters and giving them vital medical care.
