Christianburg, VA - On Thursday, February 20, 2014, at Virginia Tech Veterinary School (VMRCVM), the founder of Stolen Horse International, aka NetPosse.com, presented a program for veterinary students in a meeting with the AAEP Club.
The aim of Metcalfe's visit was to motivate students to apply their knowledge of missing horses and equine identification as a way to support for their clients in their future veterinary practice.
Metcalfe reviewed the many ways horses can disappear, the importance of equine identification, pros and cons of each type of ID and ways to support victims in their professional careers.
Stolen Horse International would like to thank AAEP club president, Katie McHenry, for inviting Metcalfe to address the club with her presentation, When A Horse Is Missing.
Stolen Horse International works with many types of organizations and people who are involved in our quest to assist victims in need.
A surprised guest, one who has followed the work of Stolen Horse International for over a decade, sat on the front row at the meeting.
Metcalfe and her husband Harold, were happy to meet John Holland of Virginia. They were able see a face to a person, who until this night had been an email address and a voice at the other end of the phone.
"I have talked to so many people over the years who have offered support to the organization in so many different ways. It is a thrill to get to meet someone in person, thank them for their help and to be able to give them a hug," said Metcalfe.
