Elaina's Continued Education

24963638_15091367920_r.jpegMy name is Elaina Albers and I am currently attending UC Davis which is my dream school for college. I am studying Animal Science to become a Veterinarian. My goal is to get my degree and bring back an Animal Hospital/Shelter to the Hoopa Community.


Growing up in Hoopa I’ve found many reasons why I put forth my education for this to become my career. Hoopa does not have services to keep our animals safe and healthy. An Animal Hospital/Shelter is beneficial for the following reasons:


(1) It reduces the amount of stray animals in the community, (2) the community would no longer need to travel and commute in order to receive help, and (3) it would provide a safe space for Tribal members to receive therapeutic interventions by using pet therapy and other services.


Currently I am struggling to find resources to fund my housing. I live in the dorms, however my financial aid does not cover the full cost which is jeopardizing my opportunity to stay. I have become passionate in ensuring that my community has the resources they need to keep their animals safe and healthy, which is why I need help to raise money so I can stay.
