RPB Veterinary Scholarship

RPB Veterinary Scholarship


RPB aims to be a community for all dog and cat breeds, whether purebred or crossbred. We guarantee that pet lovers are connected only to ethical breeders through careful dog registration and cat registration processes. One of our main goals is to create an educational space for all pet owners, dog breeders and cat breeders.

We understand that Veterinarians and Veterinary Nurses are on the front lines of animal care. We want to give them a reward to honor their service and devotion to the pets we love. RPB is offering an RPB Vet Scholarship to those interested in furthering their education in the fields of Veterinary Medicine, Animal Sciences, and Animal Care. 

RPB is committed to increased understanding of animal care within the community we have fostered. Part of that is helping veterinary students take their studies and expertise to the next level. 

The RPB Veterinary Scholarship Award

The individual chosen to receive the RPB Veterinary Scholarship will get a $1,500 to put toward course expenses.

The chosen individual may also be featured on the RPB website to gain more exposure. RPB will work with the winner of the award to look for further experience in the veterinary industry, as well as help search for future employment opportunities.
