Recruiting Vets & Techs for Opportunity in Nicaragua

World Vets is looking to recruit licensed veterinarians for a unique opportunity in Nicaragua this summer. We seek veterinarians who are available for a one -two week volunteer placement at our Latin American Veterinary Training Center located in Granada, Nicaragua.

This volunteer opportunity will have veterinarians work with English speaking veterinary students where they will provide guidance as well as instruction in performing spay and neuter surgery. Veterinarians will also take part in community outreach activities where health consultations and preventative health treatments are provided to rural animals living in outlying communities.There are typically 3 surgery days and 1 community outreach day scheduled per session. Veterinarians can expect to have 1.5 days for leisure and evenings free.

Positions are available for just 1 week or for as long as 4-6 consecutive weeks (during summer program). Veterinarians are responsible for their own international airfare, travel and/or health insurance, dinner and snacks, in addition to any optional excursions that they may wish to take part in. Lodging, most meals (i.e. breakfast/lunch on work days) and in country transportation as it relates to the program are provided. Read more about the volunteer experience here

“Team Roatan” Successfully Delivered despite Adverse Weather Conditions

This past week World Vets had a team on the island of Roatan, Honduras to provide free veterinary services for companion animals. With the “wet season” apparently not quite over, they experienced a couple of downpours during clinic days. Nevertheless, many animals were still in attendance and our team was able to successfully deliver services despite adverse weather conditions. Sterilization surgeries as well as health consultations to diagnose and treat a variety of ailments were provided.

We`d like to thank World Vets volunteers and local partners for an outstanding effort, in addition to Fondation Brigitte Bardot for their continual support of these much needed campaigns. World Vets has been committed to improving the overall health and well being of animals on the island of Roatan since 2008.

 

Municipality Pledges Support for Humane Population Control: Ecuador

For the past 5 years World Vets has been providing free high volume sterilization campaigns in Ecuador. More specifically, our services have benefited companion animals located within the municipalities of Ibarra and Otavalo. Within this time, World Vets has established agreements in these areas that have acted to cease municipal sponsored poisoning campaigns in exchange for commitments to humane population control methods.

We are happy to announce that on our most recent campaign, another municipality as pledged their support and commitment to humane population control efforts. This speaks to the positive impact and success our efforts, along with local partners, have achieved thus far in Ecuador. World Vets field service veterinarian, Dr. Karen Allum (pictured above), signed this letter of commitment on behalf of World Vets with the mayor of township Atuntaqui.

 

Training Local Veterinarians & Providing Veterinary Services in Paraguay

World Vets recently had a veterinary team in the landlocked South American country of Paraguay. One of the objectives of their visit was to provide free instruction for local veterinarians in performing spay/neuter surgeries. Another aim was to provide a high volume sterilization and animal health clinic for the poor barrios of Asuncion. During their visit, our team encountered very many sick animals requiring a variety of treatments and procedures. Nevertheless, they successfully executed both objectives, which benefited both local professionals in addition to the small animal population.

We would like to thank our team of dedicated volunteers, Fondation Brigitte Bardot as well as local partners Adoptame for their support and efforts that made this campaign possible.
