VETS OF ALL COLORS

Veterinarian Ian Scholer and his wife, Megan, founded Vets of All Colors to bring diversity to the veterinary field. To achieve this goal, we provide awareness to our local school-aged children and academic opportunities for our local graduating seniors.

Awareness begins with play for our youngest future veterinarians. Our program provides veterinary playsets to our community’s early learners. As play becomes dreams, our school-age animal lovers will have access to virtual field trips featuring diverse hometown veterinarians, vet assistants, and vet techs. As dreams become academic goals, our aspiring veterinarians in high school can access free online courses, and minority graduating seniors can apply for our scholarship opportunities. Dreams have become goals, and goals can become a career.

Our pets deserve to see veterinarians who look like their owners. We are committed to making this a reality in Augusta, Georgia.

Their four young children, two dogs, and five cats are excited to see a future where pets of all colors can have vets of all colors.
