Volunteers Needed for
the MVMA Surgery Suite at the 2017 Minnesota State Fair



The MVMA will once again be involved at the Minnesota State Fair! The MVMA Surgery Suite is going into its 25th year of doing surgery at the Fair. Surgeries are performed at 10:00 am, 12:00 noon, 2:00 pm, and 4:00 pm. This is a great chance to give back to your profession by giving the public an up-close view at the work you do, while educating them about the importance of spaying and neutering their pets. Volunteers are needed.
