The cutest veterinarians in the country can be found perfecting their medical skills at the Virginia Beach SPCA in Virginia Beach, Va.
The little animal doctors participate in the organization's 'Vet for a Day' program, created by VBSPCA education director Kathy Shambo. Three or four times a year, when school is cancelled for teacher-in-service days, the kids show up to learn how to save lives.
"Everything we do, we do as realistically as possible," Shambo told GOOD.

The 'vets' learn how to weigh animals, scan microchips, perform basic CPR and more real-life skills. “We even have them ask veterinarians questions while witnessing real animal surgeries,” Shambo said.
Shambo's devotion to animals is incredible. In May, she began taking care of two crows with deformities who would have likely been euthanized. She also participates in an elementary school reading program that brings pets to meet the kids, WTKR reported. And if that wasn't enough, Shambo also helps rehabilitate pit bulls confiscated from a dog-fighting ring.
