2023 Scholarship Recipient 

Andrew Brodie

Andrew Brodie of Salamanca has been awarded a scholarship by the Olean Kennel Club. A graduate of Salamanca High School, Andrew is now attending the SUNY of Fredonia majoring in Biology/Pre Veterinary Medicine.

Andrew has been involved in animal rescue in Almost Home Animal Sanctuary in Little Valley and Empire Animal Rescue (EARS) in Salamanca. Once he finishes his undergraduate studies he plans to go to veterinary school with the aim of starting a practice near his home town in Cattaraugus County.


The Olean Kennel Club has established an annual scholarship program, awarding one local high school student with a $500 scholarship toward their post-secondary pursuit of a degree in the pet healthcare field. We offer this scholarship in memory of our dedicated club members whom we've lost to cancer.  


Students who meet all of the following criteria may apply.


  • Resident of McKean or Potter Counties in PA; or Cattaraugus or Allegany Counties in NY.

  • Must be accepted to, or are currently enrolled in an AVMA Accredited Vet, Vet Tech Program, or other pet related field of study.

  • Able to provide a copy of letter of acceptance or current grade print out.

  • Provide two letters of recommendation (must include contact information and authentic signature, no relatives please).
