World Vets has been working in the Dominican Republic since 2011 to tackle SONY DSCsuch issues as pet overpopulation. Our efforts have consisted of providing assistance through spay/neuter training, large scale sterilization campaigns as well as product donations.  As a result of these efforts hundreds of animals have received free spay/neuter surgeries as well as quality veterinary care. All of which has contributed to the overall improvement of animal health and responsible pet ownership in the area.

Recruiting Volunteer Vets for Caribbean Spay/Neuter Project

nevis1Attention VETERINARIANS! We have 2 volunteer positions open for veterinarians on our spay/neuter project in the Caribbean! Join our 14 person team to make a difference for animals on the island of Nevis and have free time to enjoy the island too! This project is scheduled to run March 15 – 22, 2014. See more details here

Nevis, a 36 square mile island, is located in the Caribbean just south of the more famous island St. Kitts. Given Nevis is such a small island, controlling as well as maintaining a healthy animal population is of great importance. Not Nevis2only does it have a huge impact on human health but the overall sustainability of island life as a whole. What presents challenges to controlling the population is that animals roam freely and consequently breed freely, which goes hand in hand with the lack of responsible pet ownership.

To help address issues of health and population control for companion animals on the island, World Vets will carry out a small animal field service project to Nevis in 2014.

World Vets has been working with the San Andres Island Department of Health since 2012. Together we bring much needed veterinary services to the small animal population and in turn improve the overall public health on the island.

In December we had a veterinary team carry out a large scale spay/neuter and animal health campaign. Our veterinary services  target both roaming and owned animals on the island.

We would like to thank our local partners, volunteers and Fondation Brigitte Bardot for their support of this One Health concept project.
