Thank you for your support this #GivingTuesday. World Vets once again participated in the global movement to encourage spending with a purpose. ‘Tis the season to give thanks & we are THANKFUL for all of you, the most incredible group of supporters!  Since last Giving Tuesday, World Vets has brought free veterinary services to thousands of animals throughout the Americas, Africa, the Caribbean, Eastern Europe and Asia. Dogs, cats, donkeys, horses, marine mammals and other wildlife have all benefited from our work which brings skilled veterinary care to underserved areas of the world.  Our programs also help to build local capacity to improve the welfare of animals through training and education.  We depend on your support to keep these programs going throughout the year.  It is because of ALL OF YOU that we can help so many animals in need.  Thank you for partnering with us to make the world better for animals.

World Vets Teams Return from Asia

During the month of November World Vets had three veterinary teams in three different countries in Asia. We provided free high volume sterilization campaigns in Laos, Cambodia and Nepal respectfully. Each project was unique in its own way, though as part of each campaign we not only performed free spay/neuter, but also provided free rabies vaccinations for animal patients. This was important to include as part of our free services since rabies is still prevalent in these countries, and we felt it essential to aid local efforts in eradicating this fatal virus.

This was our first time working in Laos and our campaign was met with a great result and promise for future efforts.

In Cambodia our local partnerships continue to grow and in turn made additional services available for animal patients this year such as free microchipping.

And in Nepal, our free services continue to benefit the street dog population of Kathmandu to provide not only sterilization, but other much needed veterinary care.

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
