New FGCU scholarship program

Dog at Vet

For the Love of Cats is honored to partner with Florida Gulf Coast University in our new scholarship program for their biology students. Our goal is to create more interest in a career in veterinary medicine among students enrolled in their biology curriculum.

 

The veterinary community of Southwest Florida constantly struggles with staffing requirements. This greatly affects their capacity to help the rescues of Southwest Florida in their efforts to make a difference for the lives of animals in need.

 

Our scholarship program is designed to mentor students interested in pursuing a career in  veterinary medicine with the anticipation that they will bring their skills back home to the needs of Southwest Florida.


This program is being funded by donations from the business community.

Our 2022 For the Love of Cats Scholarship has been generously funded by

  • Bobbie Confer of Remax realty on Marco Island

  • Dr. Cindy Strohmeyer, Dermatology Specialists of Naples

  • Dr. Jon Strohmeyer, Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery
