Genesee’s Vet Tech program is housed at the Genesee County Animal Shelter located on West Main Street in Batavia. Under the extensive oversight of GCC’s Vet Tech program, second year students enrolled in the college’s Veterinary Technology program gain hands-on experience by working with the staff and volunteers who operate the shelter.

GCC students aid in most facets of the shelter’s daily operation. This includes basic animal care such as feeding, cleaning, and kennel duty, as well as reception, client education, transport and record keeping. They work closely with on-duty, licensed veterinary technologists and veterinarians to provide direct animal care by checking vital signs, collecting and processing blood and fecal samples, ear cleaning, administering medications and diagnostic testing.
