Team Returns from Successful Campaign in Honduras

World Vets has been running spay/neuter clinics in Roatan, Honduras for the last 8 years. As part of these clinics we offer sterilization surgeries as well as medical consults and preventive treatments. In 2015 we operated two large scale veterinary campaigns where all veterinary services were provided free of charge. One of our teams just returned from a successful project on the island. See pictures from our most recent campaigns here

We’d like to thank our stellar volunteers and local coordinators for an excellent effort. We’d also like to give big thanks to Foundation Brigitte Bardot for their ongoing support of this program.

World Vets Aids Animals in Cambodia

Earlier this month World Vets had a small scout team in Cambodia to carry out a pilot project in Siem Reap. Despite a small team size and some challenges along the way, they executed quite a successful spay/neuter campaign with many animals in attendance. Way to go Team Cambodia!

We`d like to thank Wat Damnak for hosting our campaign and Fondation Brigitte Bardot for their support of this project.

Indiegogo Campaign Success!

For many years World Vets has been operating an equine welfare project in Nicaragua to benefit horses in and around the city of Granada. Horses are an important livelihood source for many households as they are relied upon to help carry out daily chores and generate income. Due to difficult socio-economic constraints, these horses are often malnourished and affected by tropical diseases and injuries from their heavy workload.

On our most recent campaign, our team met Pithaya after they were asked to stop by a nearby home that had a sick horse. Upon arrival, they discovered four-year-old Pithaya who was severely malnourished, had several infected wounds, overgrown feet, and evidence of tick borne disease.  Although he was in severe condition, the owners (two young girls and their grandmother) care for him greatly. However, caring for Pithaya has become extremely difficult for them as they have health issues of their own, and no current income source or means to earn money. What`s more, the parents of the children have left the home to seek employment elsewhere.

The World Vets team created an Indiegogo campaign to help pay for Pithaya’s extensive treatment & to provide aid to other Nicaraguan horses & families living in similar conditions. We’re thrilled to announce that we met our Indiegogo goal of raising $5k!  We are so incredibly thankful to everyone who participated! We’d like to extend our thanks to all of our supporters. A special thank you to our dedicated campaign team members Dr. Steve Kruneniski, Dr. Dana Westerman, Elisa Harvey, Cynthia Spanhel, and Amanda Headman for increasing fundraising efforts by spreading the word.

Stay tuned for news and updates on Pithaya & the other horses of Nicaragua that your contributions are supporting! Didn’t get the chance to contribute? It’s not too late! Help a horse by clicking HERE.
