Being greeted at the door by a canine companion is enough to brighten any pet owner's day. For some, it could even help them find their way in life. Katelyn Martin, Stautzenberger College graduate, is just one animal lover who credits her dog for changing the course of her future.

“My dog made me feel like life was worth living, and I wanted to help other animals so they could help other people feel the same way,” says Ms. Martin. This conviction led her to enroll in the Animal Welfare Management program at Maumee Campus. Despite personal challenges, she always kept pursuing her goal. “I have severe anxiety and agoraphobia, but I still did my best to go to school and find a job,” she says. Ms. Martin's determination paid off as she progressed through her externship at Paws and Whiskers Cat Shelter in Toledo, Ohio and graduated from the program in December of 2018.

Our Diploma in Animal Welfare Management program prepares students for entry-level employment in the animal welfare field. Courses include: Foundational Principles of Animal Health and Nutrition, Principles of Shelter Management and Medicine, Client Communication, and more. Those who are interested in further developing these skills and advancing their careers may also enroll in our Associate of Applied Science in Animal Welfare Business Management program. Either way, the staff at Stautzenberger College is ready to prepare animal lovers for numerous career opportunities.
