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.

Update: Pacific Partnership 2014

CMP-002This update is for prospective volunteers who have been inquiring about and|or interested in applying for a position on World Vets veterinary team as part of the 2014 Pacific Partnership mission.

We have recently been informed of some changes to the mission this year. These changes have ultimately impacted NGO participation. As such, World Vets will be scaling back its veterinary team size, in addition to its reach, for the 2014 mission. Consequently, we will not be soliciting applications to fill the limited CMP-004positions that may be available. We thank those who have expressed an interest and for their continual support of our efforts as part of this civil-military mission.

Pacific Partnership is an annual U.S. Pacific Fleet humanitarian and civic assistance mission designed to work by, with and through host and partner nations, non-government organizations and international agencies to build partnerships and a collective ability to respond to natural disasters.

 

World Vets Impact on Pets Affected by Midwest Tornado

Earlier last month World Vets covered the story of `Maggie`, a dog that went missing and was then discovered, after a devastating tornado in the American Midwest.  Upon hearing of the disaster World Vets pledged financial support to Teegarden Veterinary Clinic who helped pets like Maggie and pets belonging to owners who were in a hardship situation because of the disaster.

We are very happy to share that our financial contribution directly impacted many pets at this clinic be treated and recover from their injuries. Aside from `Maggie`, other patients were `Dexter` and a cat named`Stewart`. `Stewart`s` family had been looking for him after the tornado destroyed their home and ten days later they called the clinic to report he had been found. He was soon brought in to receive attention.

We would like to thank everyone who contributed to our disaster response fund this year. As Sarah Ripper, CVT, from Teegarden Veterinary Clinic has told us, `being able to tell owners they don`t have to worry about the cost of treatment has been a real blessing for us and our owners`
