Successful Pilot Project Executed in Brazil

This month we had a veterinary team in northeastern Brazil to provide a free high volume sterilization campaign as well as surgical instruction to local veterinarians. This was our first time working in the country and feel it was quite successful with 500 + surgeries being performed and 20 + veterinarians benefiting from training.

We’d like to thank our dedicated volunteers for a tireless yet rewarding project, Fondation Brigitte Bardot for their support of this endeavor as well as our local partners. See more pictures

World Vets Continues its Commitment to Animals in Albania

World Vets has been working in Albania for many years to provide sterilization services at no cost in various communities to help control the dog and cat population.

This past month World Vets had a team in Shkoder, Albania to provide a high volume sterilization campaign. Our free veterinary services benefited feral and free roaming cats as well as street dogs. Almost 200 animals received care during this visit. We’d like to thank our dedicated volunteers as well as local partners for another successful campaign!

Our next visit to Albania is scheduled for April 2019. We still have volunteer positions open – find out more

World Vets IVM Program to resume Summer 2019

We are delighted to announced that our much loved International Veterinary Medicine (IVM) Program is scheduled to resume in summer 2019!

World Vets IVM Program is our official student program. It is both a surgical and veterinary training program for veterinary, pre-veterinary and technician students who wish to gain clinical as well as practical veterinary experience. In addition to surgical instruction (provided to veterinary students), students participate in a multi-disciplinary veterinary program and cultural experience that will not only enhance their education, but also give them a broader understanding of international veterinary medicine. Learn more

The location for the Summer 2019 IVM Program will be Otavalo, Ecuador. IVM sessions will commence mid-late May 2019 and run for 8 days/7 nights. Exact dates to be posted in the coming weeks and early sign up for World Vets members will start during the month of October 2018. A deposit of $400 US will be due at the time of registration for students.

As part of this program, we also have a low cost opportunity for DVM‘s and LVT‘s who enjoy teaching and working with students.
