Zoot Pet Hospital awards $4,000 in scholarships to deserving Georgetown ISD students on May 17th.
Zoot Pet Hospital and Luxury Boarding + Luxury Boarding is a Georgetown business founded by two high school friends, Jim Root and Dr. Wayne Zeh. Founded in 2008, Zoot fused these friend's unique work life experiences, a passion for business and veterinary medicine, to form the backbone of Zoot Pets. Jim, Wayne and fellow owner, Dr. Jensen Young, all strongly believe in supporting public education and hence have created these scholarships to reward high preforming students in Georgetown, particularly those interested in pursuing a post-secondary education in either business or veterinary medicine. Their parents were their biggest supporters during their formative high school years and thus they have named the scholarships in honor of them.
