K9 Carts is proud to announce that our 2014 Veterinary Medicine Scholarship has been awarded to Tramaine Creighton of St. Croix, US Virgin Islands. Tramaine is a 3rd year DVM Candidate, Class of 2016, at Purdue University’s College of Veterinary Medicine.

“I am honored to be the recipient of the 2014 K9 Carts Annual Scholarship,” Tramaine stated. “The financial support received though this scholarship will definitely help me to further my studies and achieve my goals. My passions and desires motivate me to dream big dreams, such as traveling the world to help diverse communities. I am truly grateful for K9 Carts’ investment in my future of becoming a successful veterinarian and, in return, I too can invest in the future of others.”

Tramaine is interested in mixed animal practice and seeks to fill a veterinary void on her home island of St. Croix. “There is a need for a large animal veterinarian at home and it is a goal of mine to fill that need by becoming a mixed animal veterinarian.” She would also like to work internationally with underprivileged communities by equipping them to become self-sustainable.

K9 Carts has been dedicated to helping handicapped dogs and cats worldwide since the 1970s and now looks to inspire a new generation of animal lovers to dedicate their lives to the well-being of animals. By providing this scholarship, we are investing in the future of our pets’ health and happiness by supporting future veterinarians and their endeavors.

Students studying veterinary medicine or a related field at accredited colleges and universities in the US were eligible to apply. The scholarship winner was chosen from participants across the United States and awarded on September 15th, 2014.
