THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) -

A south Georgia technical college recently has a new relationship with a humane society.

The Southwest Georgia Tech Veterinary Technician Program now uses Thomas County Humane Society pets in the classroom.

The students spay and neuter the animals and perform teeth cleanings and other health procedures at a significantly reduced rate to the animal shelter.

"We can identify some health problems, parasite problems, for the Humane Society. And of course that allows them to house and adopt out healthier pets. And again for us it's hands on experience that's invaluable to our students," said SWGTC Vet Tech Program Director Dr. Bo Curles.

After their day at the vet tech hospital, the animals are taken back to the Humane Society where they wait to be adopted.
