Consider giving a gift that has a global impact. Why not forgo traditional gifts this season and give a symbolic one that will help animals, purchase needed veterinary supplies or sponsor the training of a Latin American veterinarian. Or if you or someone you know volunteers with World Vets, a great gift idea is World Vets logo gear for your/their next adventure. Browse World Vets Gift Shop here

After the devastating storms in the Midwest, Jon Byler Dann’s dog Maggie was missing after their home was flattened by the tornado.  According to weatherchannel.com, his family survived but their beloved dog Maggie could not be found.   Nearly 30 hours later, Maggie was found buried in the rubble- alive but injured.  She is currently being treated for a dislocated hip and respiratory issues at the Teegarden Veterinary Clinic in Washington, Illinois.   World Vets spoke to the clinics’ owner Dr Michael Thomas earlier today and he indicated the Maggie is expected to recover.  They are treating several animals injured in the tornado.  Most heartbreaking is how many of their clients have pets that are still missing.  World Vets has pledged financial support to Teegarden Veterinary Clinic to help pets like Maggie and pets belonging to owners who are in a hardship situation because of the tornado.

Our hearts go out to the victims of the recent tornadoes that have ripped through the Midwestern United States and we are reaching out with support.  World Vets has a network of veterinarians all over United States (and the world).  When disasters strike in our own country, we reach out to those who are in the best position to help – the vets and shelters already working in the local area. Financial support and product donations will be provided to support local veterinary clinics and/or shelters helping animals in the affected areas.  Any donations we receive will go directly to support these local groups, which will be announced. Specific needs are still being assessed but we know that many lost pets have already been brought to local clinics and shelters. Many happy reunions have already taken place.
