DogE 911's Jr Vet Program~
Our Jr Vet Program was developed to motivate our youth
working toward careers with animals.
There is nothing more rewarding than helping to make a difference in the life of an innocent one, be it a child or an animal. DogE911 is here to do both!
Our program allows for youth, up to age 18, to obtain their
training for FREE while also offering volunteer opportunities.
Jr Vet Program includes:
* Volunteer Opportunities

* Working With Animals
* School Programs
* Learning Public Speaking
* Learning Animal Laws
* Presidential Awards

Christina George, first Youth Assistant
Scholarship / Tina's Fund~
Interested in becoming a
'Our youth are the key to making changes in our animals future! '
Christina George is a special young lady who began working with DogE911 when she was only 12 years old. She was hand picked by Genete M. Bowen in October 2007 & has been a valuable asset to the Jr Vet Program.
Christina, or Tina as she likes to be called, is a pet lover & owner, animal advocate, youth counselor & mentor, & has aspirations of becoming a veterinarian.
Her enthusiasm is infectious & she is a joy to have around.
During her time with DogE911 Tina has helped educate on animal first aid &
disaster planning, volunteered at numerous pet events, helped recruit & train new youth assistants, spoken at the California State Capitol, worked with animal shelters & kennels, & learned pet massage techniques. In 2010, she was even honored
with American Humane's 'Be Kind To Animals' award, along with receiving both
state legislature recognition & the President's Award.
Tina is a true 'all animal' lover in the purest sense! She has traveled throughout
the world & was more concerned with the plight of animals than in sightseeing. Even feeding her meals to stray animals, as her concern for them was greater
than her own.
Genete's favorite of Tina's rescue stories is that of a lizard she met while visiting
El Salvador. During Tina's stay she was horrified to discover that dinner was to be lizard soup. She pleaded with her family, & was granted permission to untie the
two-foot lizard's limbs & unsuture his mouth before naming & setting it free.
Tina's Fund is a scholarship program under DogE911, & is in honor of our very
first youth assistant Christina George. We are proud to name a scholarship
after such an extraordinary young woman.
* Please donate to Tina's Fund to help us empower our
Jr Vet Program. No amount is too meager to assist our
next wave of animal professionals!
